Trojan is disguised as security warning

Recommended Posts

This might be linked to the fact that MS had problems with a security update site that would download a trojan that would hijack your computer..  It was a while ago and I never really heard much about it.. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=1093&e=2&u=/pcworld/120379

I've heard with some programs (e.g.: Outlook), just using the preview option can cause problems.

Using preview will automatically run macro viruses within an infected email.  Outlook express is also known for this.
