I have never gotten an email virus in over 5 years of using email, probably because one never got through the ISP's Antivirus capabilities. Well, I just got an email with a bunch of garbage text like this:

˝FLf◊HR≠{u˙≥uπfl9≥\]Z] o<√
∏e
≥F$ı∑Q-LPfi2≤x8◊˘,
flQ≠Y>πͩƅ4o◊OMx˘
l10⁄...

and then a comprehensible text message attachment containing this message:


Norton AntiVirus removed the attachment: TRANSCRIPT.SCR.

The attachment was infected with the W32.Mydoom.M@mm virus.


So for some, this is a reminder to pay attention to what attachments you open. For others, such as myself, stay alert.
