I just got notification from my antiviru program about a new email worm,  If
anyone would like a copy of the report I'd be glad to forward it.  It's a
pretty extensive report and lists the programs it affects.

  Has anyone seen a potentially new Outlook virus in the wild?

   It appears that you receive an infected message that shows no
attachment when viewed in Outlook.  When opened the virus sends email
out to people in your address book with a subject and content taken
from a previously sent message.  One person reported seeing something
flash on their screen very quickly when it was opened.  The virus is
attaching itself using the name of an attachment you sent before.
   Up to date Mcafee and Norton virus scanners do not appear to be
catching it.  My Anomy Sanitizer at home caught that there was an .scr
attachment with the message and defanged it.  Other people reported
that their virus scanner did not catch it but an email defanger did.
