It seems every other week there is a new computer virus making the rounds. In recent days the W32/SirCam@MM worm has been infiltrating networks around the country and is spreading like wildfire.
This virus sends itself as an executable to e-mail recipients found in the Windows address book and addresses found in cache files.
This virus has been assessed as a high-risk and spreads via e-mail with a random subject line and the body of the message starts with "Hi! How are you?"
The rest of the greeting can be one of the following:
"I hope you can help me with this file that I send," or
"I hope you like the file that I send to you," or
"This is the file with the information you asked for …
See you later. Thanks"
The same message may be received in Spanish.
If any of these messages appear, do not open this e-mail.
