View Full Version : URGENT!
I have been infected with the sircam virus.Do NOT open anything that was sent by "me" in your eMial. I am working on the problem as we speak but, I am running into some problems with my computer. I will let everyone know when it is clear. "Two in the box, ready to go, we be fast, and they be slow!"<i></i>
Thanks for the warning Starfig. <i></i>
Holy cow, thank you so much for telling me! I nearly downloaded the file attachment yesterday, but then a second thought came to me that it was a virus! I guess my updated anti-virus software would've got it and killed it anyway, but it's not a good idea to download it, anyway. I became suspicious when I saw that the file said .doc.pif on it, a file type which I've never heard of before. I'm so glad that I'm paranoid! Whew! <i></i>

I've been emailed that virus multiple times.And the "Hi, how are you?" virus.Since I am a Macintosh user, the virus doesn't affect me. Hakuna Matata. <i></i>
I got this "Hi, how are you?" virus about 50 times... nearly every 30 minutes until yesterday.Some people are really veeeeery funny. <i></i>
I also got a bunch of mails with that virus, but it dosen't affect the linux machine i use for checking my mail.... Sorry online status that was here in the past has been removed due to ezboard restrictions :(!++++ !T RLU a18 cln+++ !e !h iwt++++ lnm sm#">Click to .<i></i>
My Commodore 64 is immune as well. <i></i>
Well, it has an ability to send to all e-mails it found - not only in the address book but also to all email addresses found in temporary Internet cached files.www.antivirus.com/pc-cill...J_SIRCAM.A <i></i>

Good greif...the amount of steps it takes to rid of the file...When I get a Mac virus, I move it to the trash. (How is this possible? Viruses are normally invisible, but I have the almighty ResEdit to see invisible files.) Once a file is in the trash, the system has complete control over it, since the trash can is a special directory that can prevent applications (viruses and trojans) from self-launching. And once something is moved to the trash, it cannot unmove itself.When NAV is active, it finds the virus and deletes the infectious code, and prevents it from spreading.Very quick to remove a virus on my Mac, although I haven't been infected by a virus in 4 years! <i>Edited by: The Sonic God at: 7/28/01 6:59:55 am</i>
I've never heard of a linux virus... But they must exist... The problem is, that they will only have the possibility to create destroy files the current logged in user have access to destroy... So it's pretty limited (I bet there's a workaround for virus programmers) Sorry online status that was here in the past has been removed due to ezboard restrictions :(!++++ !T RLU a18 cln+++ !e !h iwt++++ lnm sm#">Click to .<i></i>

It saddens me to think that there are people out there who only want to destroy, either to make them feel good, prove that they can, or claim vengence on others.They need to be horsewhipped or at the very least psychological counceling...hehe. <i></i>
