    Virus question

    When I was traveling the net I came to a site and recieved this warning from my firewall ( Nimda worm is attepting to infect your system through web page ) the question is i thought nimda was an e-mail virus ? Well it came from ://hscool.ugin.ru/ I removed the http from it so you would not click on it. Anyway heads up.

    E-mail is only one way that Nimda can infect you.

    In addition to the usual E-Mail methods, this virus attempts to spread itself from infected web pages by attempting to use your browser's file download and execute capability. It is imperative that users check their Internet Explorer or other browser to insure that File Downloads have been either disabled or at least require that the user answer "yes" to a prompt.
    If you receive something that says \'Send this to everyone you know,\' pretend you don\'t know me.
