There is a new worm out. Do not open any email from admin@(your provider).

Trys to exploit a know bug in internet explorer. It comes thru as a zip file and thru social engineering it gets opened and started. Once it infected the computer it looks for additional email address stored on the hard drive to replicate itself.

We received it this morning, but Andy knew enough not to open it.

Thanks for the tip!

A big THANKS for this warning. Despite the fact that McAfee has been updated extensively since the warning, including earlier today, I just received a version of this one (that we did not open). I thought that might warrant bringing this up to the top of the list.
