W32 BugBear Virus

PHIL TEMPLES DIDN’T DO IT!!! It was me… your new Eastern Mass P.V.C. (Public Virus Coordinator)! I opened an email from a ham in Finland and without opening the attachment, it infected my Ham PC, grabbed an old message from Phil, infected the message and sent it out to “who knows” how many people on my address list! I am sincerely sorry for any grief that this has caused… especially to Phil who got blamed for it. I downloaded a bug fix from Symantec for this particular virus and it cleaned it completely. The Virus was the “w32.bugbear” virus… again, my heartfelt apologies… this is a first for me. Definitely not the kind you like, though.
