Hi Team

Another in the current raft of viruses passed by this morning but it had an interesting twist that I haven't seen before. The beginning of the message said:

Your archive is attached.

+++ Attachment: No Virus found
+++ MC-Afee AntiVirus - www.mcafee.com

Now that could fool some people, though the misspelling of McAfee is a bit of a clue (you'd think they had the brains to at least get that right, especially when they supplied the URL for authenticity). It was a Netsky variant BTW.

Cheers

No, I didn't open it, it looked interesting in
Mailwasher so I had a peek inside. :)
