GLIN==> Please don't respond to the listserv with virus warnings!



To all GLIN list subscribers:

Once again, the computer world is under attack by a virus. The subject 
lines vary alot, from "Hi" to "Error..." to "Undeliverable mail...", and 
some of them may appear to come from a listserv address.

Two points: Most viruses, including this one, originate in the 
attachments. If you don't recognize the message or it doesn't make 
sense, LEAVE THE ATTACHMENT ALONE! Just because a virus attachment is 
posted to a listserv does NOT MEAN that the list is infected with the virus.

The glin-announce listserv address is in thousands of computers 
throughout the region, and if one gets infected by this virus, any 
address stored on it can be slipped into the sender line. That has 
become a standard trick, part of making it easier to fool people.

Please observe list etiquette and DO NOT RESPOND TO THE LISTSERV with 
virus warnings or advice.

Thanks again for observing list etiquette.

Sincerely,
GLIN Webmaster
