    W32.Dumarua@mm

    Got this one in yahoo today. I heard it's been going around. Anyway, when I opened up the mail IE closed down on me. Im not really sure if the virus installed. I checked all the *.ini and *.bat and removed anything I didn't need, and checked for all the modified/created files. Im just not sure if IE closed because the virus affected it, or if IE just sucks. (I usually use mozilla)

    you got this in an attachment using yahoo webmail ?
    they have a virus scan that should of alerted you and prevented you from downloading it. probably it was just IE "taking a dump" .. 'tho wouldn't hurt to update your AV and do a full scan. or find an online AV scanner and go there..

    I warned G-man about this. Well that does make sense, at least I know why I keep getting it sent to me. JK. But I did send you that sh** from Symantec about it already.

    Urgent update from Micro$oft! Download Immediately!
