    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:

    ˝ôFLf◊öHR≠{u´˙Í≥uπfl…À9≥Æ\]«Z] ùˆÉo<¯√ê„Ï

    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.
