    Annoyance of the Beagle virus

    I'm not infected (I ran a virus scan) but I keep getting emails, which NAV catches and deletes. If someone opens an email attachment with the virus it then sends itself to all the addresses in your email address list. I wrote to the 8-9 people in my address book, but that did not help. I have been getting 2 such Beagle email a day now for the lst 3 days and on each on the 5 days before that. I wrote all my addressees on Nov. 14 told them how to get rid of it but can't be sure all my contacts will feel they are in a position to get rid of it.

    So do I just forget about it (live with its nuisance) until finally it just dies down? It came out first in March and has many variants. It does no harm to one's computer.
    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you.

    Some of those e-mail addresses are spoofed. So it's not the actual person sending it but his/her e-mail address gets faked and sends the virus.

    Well, I think virus writers should be taken out and shot! And so far I have gotten 2 such emails each day since Nov. 14 (as I write it's evening Nov. 19) I have one 4 letter word, inappropriate here but it's EMPHATIC! At least no harm is being caused (NAV catches all the emails.)
