Thread Name: Another Virus Hoax (SULFNBK)....
Subject: RE: Another Virus Hoax (SULFNBK)....
I guess it's really getting around. I got the warning from an upstairs neighbor who e-mailed me last night. Fortunately I wasn't on-line at the time, because about an hour and a half later, he e-mailed me again to say he'd learned it was a hoax. When I went on line again, both messages came in at the same time.

Being slightly paranoid (not without reason) I make it a practice to run Norton Virus Scan on every e-mail attachment I get -- and every e-mail that mentions "virus" in the Subject line. It only takes a minute or two. But this thing is insidious. I tries to get you to scuttle your own boat!

Thanks for the above links!
