Subject: RE: BIOS Virus nasty but it can be squished!
Melissa (aka MAILISSA) was bi-platform in that it was actually a Microsoft Office macro-virus, and was dependent upon the program being run for mail, rather then the Operating System. If you use/d Microsoft products as the client for your e-mail, then it could hit you. Non-microsoft and you were (probably) safe, but could infect other people if you forwarded.
