E-Mail Virus Plays Havoc With Internet: Did It Catch You?

We reported to you a couple of days ago about the ‘Here You Have’ email virus, and how you can prevent and remove it. The virus is still grabbing the headlines since it first came to light.

Fox News writers Jeremy A. Kaplan & Jana Winter are reporting that the email virus was still in the top five Google searches as of last Friday. The Internet Storm Center reported that the initial app that started the cloud of spam had been taken down. No new reports of infected servers were reported on Friday morning, but the Storm Center warned that “New variants may well follow.”

To recap the virus was a simple Trojan Horse which arrives via email in your inbox, and has the subject line “here you have.” If you clink on the link in the message it launches the same virus out to everyone in your address book, crashing email servers.

Leading antivirus suppliers such as McAfee Labs and Symantec are working on the threat, and have updated their website to showcase security products which can help protect users. Have you been a victim of this email virus, or do you know someone who has?
