Here is a note I got from a friend...thought I would share it.

Most of the virus traffic has been directed to Microsoft so it has been
Microsoft's responsibility to plug the gaps.

If you will check at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
a new patch is available. Click on New Products. Follow through and do the
download. It's about 2 megs.

For those of you that are running McAfee Anti-Virus, there is a fix for the
latest of the viruses. It appears here as an ".exe" attachment.

This is nothing more than a friend helping a friend. The whole thing is
virus free. The attachment is called "Newlove.exe".. And, remember, it is
for McAfee clients only. If you do not have McAfee software, ignore the
attachment.

Many of the things you receive in email are hoaxes and are nothing more than a bunch of sick individuals trying to panic you. A professional in this business will check any one of several sites on the internet to make sure the virus is real. My favorite spot is with Network Associates and their free virus library at: http://vil.mcafee.com/default.asp?

Always assume the worst but check the virus libraries before you resend the email warning. A hoax is as bad as the real thing because it puts people into a panic needlessly. Be responsible. Delete the hoaxes and make room for the real problems on the internet.
