Happy99 virus and commercial sitesFrom Jeff at Ackley Uniforms
on 3 March '99
Yeah I know there are tons of phoney virus alerts on the net. But
I the past week I've been mailed the Happy99.exe virus THREE times from
different sources. Today I got an email from Costra Rica at our business
site that contained the Happy99.exe in an attachment.
THIS IS NOT A HOAX. If deleted, the attachment does no harm. There's
a lot of info on the net about how to clean up your computer if you
become infected with this virus.
I wonder how big a problem viruses are to busy commercial sites that
receive lots of email. BTW, I understand Happy99 is only two months
old and Nortons and several other programs don't detect it.
What is the best way to handle email with attachments? I always delete
them. Is that right?
