[concours] Badtrans virus

Hate to say it guys, but my machine picked up this virus and I finished
eradicating it just 15 minutes ago-----at least according to Norton it is
all gone. Certainly hope I didn’t infect anyone else.

The instructions mentioned below do work, by the way !

For anyone interested, I was perusing about 100 back-logged e-mails and the
nasty one appeared to be an off-list message from someone (“Bob” ? Not
sure. ) on the “Concours” list. I can’t remember exactly what it said but I
think the subject line was “concours points”. So, beware ! I didn’t even
realize there was a problem till yesterday…

helpful for those that might have come in contact and been infected.
The link that you need is:
Risk Detected
which will tell you all about it and what to do to fix it.

I’ve been receiving at least 2 of these viruses a day, “yours” was the most
tricky as it came with a reply to my own message…

Bottom line, if you see any attachemnt ending in .exe .com .pif.
.scr .vbs delete immediately !

I’m glad you told me. I didn’t send you anything, nor did I reply to you.
Time to run virus scan.
