    Wrong forum dude. This is for bugs on the site. Not viri/worms/trojans.

    Why not just post a link to more information? Why should I email you?

    Oh GOd this is the worst virus ever!!!!

    Isn't this one of the million canned virus hoxes we see every month???

    Popeye, this has several characteristics that are consistance with mass email hoaxes that attempt to get/or verify your email address. Some even carry virus payloads themselves. I assume you got this in an email message from a friend. What was the original email header?

    Fizzer has been around for a while and was down graded to medium in May by McAfee. I forgot to post that in my last mesage but the wording in the content and the person asking for an email address is suspicious of hoaxes.
