PayPal Virus Scam
 

Tuesday - November 9th., 2004:
There is a new variant of the MyDoom virus making its way around the Web, and it is masquerading as a confirmation email from PayPal.  Please look for an email message from Joe Lear at ETCS on this matter.  For more information about this latest threat see the Web sites below, and please don't click on the link in this scam email message.

McAfee

Symantec

w32.mydoom.ah@mm.html

Note that the PayPal email with the bad link in it is not from PayPal, but from someone trying to demonstrate their virus skills to all of us.
