    There's a virus spreading around the net at the moment and it looks like a bounced email. The FROM address is MAILER-DAEMON. Upon inspection it is masked as a Yahoo email address. The attachment is a .dat file and installs the command.exe virus. Not a major virus but it emails your AOL account information to somewhere (if you don't have AOL, it just sits there and corrupts some system files). It also corrupts some system files that may require an OS re-install.

    I speak from experience

    Thankfully I had everything backed up. And I now have the lastest version of Norton

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    I just now updated my Norton virus info before replying.
