I just recieved an email from a friend, thought it was a bit odd as it had an atachment with it that looked strange.

After checking with my mate we decided it was a virus (pretty obvious as they hadnt sent me any mail!)

As you can see iy looks and reads pretty profesional, and included a gif at the bottom sugesting it was from Norton.

Anyway, if you recieve one, check with the sender befor opening!

heres the email!
"Dear User ,

This is A very High Resk Virus Alert.

This email is sent to you because one or some of your friends has been infected
with The W32.BlackWorm.A@mm Virus.
And you could be infected too.This Virus has the ability to damage the hard disk.
This Virus infects computers using many new ways :

1- it arrives as an email attachment inside of jpg pictures.
2- it infects the ip address without the victim's knowledge.
3- it infects Microsoft Word Documents using a new exploit in hex (00fxf0xf10x).

Symantec Consumer products that support Worm Blocking functionality automatically detect this threat as it attempts to spread.
Symantec Security Response has attached a removal tool to clean and prevent the infections of W32.BlackWorm.A@mm.

Norton AntiVirus"

I find it amazing that IT peeps can read and write binary, or basic, or HTML or whatever so well, but they suck at english!!!
