Yes, you can get a virus from opening a Word .doc

If you don't know who the sender is, the best way is to reply to this
person asking who he is before opening an attachment.
Or if you really want to open it, save it to your hard drive (without
opening), and scan it with your Virus scan program (make sure you
update your virus scan regularly with the latest virus lists, otherwise
it won't be that effective).

Melanie
