Microsoft word attachments received from unknown senders
From Jeff at Ackley Uniforms on 13 Sept '99
A few months ago I asked the boarders here about how to handle email
containing attachments that occasionally are sent to our online business
Most said such email should be deleted without opening the attached files
because of virus risk.

I realize the risk in opening .exe and .bat files. But is there any risk
in opening an attachment labeled "Microsoft Document File" (.doc)? How
about an Acrobat file (.pdf)?
