New Worm Hits Lab Computers;
Do Not Open E-Mail Attachments

A new worm that targets Windows systems (called "Bagle.AL" or "Beagle.AO," depending on the anti-virus vendor) is spreading rapidly across the Internet today. Anti-virus vendors are now updating their products, but until Norton AV/Symantec AV Client is updated, avoid opening any e-mail attachment. Delete the message that contains the attachment, even if it appears to be from someone you know (unless you were expecting the attachment).

The new worm generates infected attachments with names such as, and Delete the message that contains this attachment. And above all, avoid forwarding any such attachment to anyone else.

Those who opened any attachment sent by this worm have infected their systems. Immediately disconnect the system from the network, or call the Help Desk at x4357 to find out how it’s done.

Highs: mid 70s (25° C).
