Virus warning, was: Re: All your NIC handles are belong to us

Hmm, my Norton AV/Win2000 just spit up a warning about the "W32.Badtrans.13312@mm" virus
file being detected in the following mail - as a SETUP.pif attachment.
Given that it quotes a 6-week old NANOG posting of mine, I am almost sure
that I am not the only recipient.

lightreading>agora>thorn copied FYI: you might want to give your user a phone call
about this, in case he doesn't read his email on a regular basis or/and if he is
blissfully unaware of what's transpiring on his machine.

http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/cgi-bin/virauto.cgi?vid=28772 describes this
as a MAPI worm that uses a few more filenames to disguise itself:

Pics.ZIP.scr
images.pif
README.TXT.pif
New_Napster_Site.DOC.scr
news_doc.scr
hamster.ZIP.scr
YOU_are_FAT!.TXT.pif
searchURL.scr
SETUP.pif
Card.pif
Me_nude.AVI.pif
Sorry_about_yesterday.DOC.pif
s3msong.MP3.pif
docs.scr
Humor.TXT.pif
fun.pif

I guess Norton/Symantec can change the "wild" level from "low" to "medium" now.
