    Question Permanent Thread "Holes in Outlook"?

    W32.Rexli.A@mm is a mass-mailing worm that is written in Visual Basic. When executed, the worm emails all contacts in the Microsoft Outlook address book. If mIRC is found, the worm modifies a file called Script.ini. This modification causes an infected user to send the worm to people over the IRC network.

    I think M$ releases viruses on purpose so they get publicity... Then when they fix the bug, all the people already using M$ think that they OS is more secure for them...
