    ~*~*WARNING: MyLife Virus Spreading*~*~

    A warning to all. . . be on the lookout for this virus.

    March 22 — A dangerous new computer virus dubbed “MyLife” started spreading steadily around the Internet last night. A massive outbreak is not expected, but the bug is rated a medium risk by many antivirus firms because its payload is nasty. MyLife deletes critical system files from infected machines, potentially rendering them unusable. The virus is also noteworthy because the author attempts to trick recipients into thinking the e-mail attachment is safe by including text to suggest the note has been declared “virus-free” by McAfee antivirus software.

    Delete all files detected as W32.MyLife.B@mm or W32.Caric@mm and remove the value that it added to the registry

    Got that alert a few days ago, but it not only propagates itself through Outlook, but also MSN Messenger(hotmail)....

    I actually got an email from my ISP warning about this virus....first time in about two years of service with them that they sent out a mass mailing about a virus...
