cmeans and lots and lots of others have pointed us to this MSNBC article article about yet another e-mail virus. Quote from the story: "The virus can only run if Internet Explorer 5.0 with Windows Scripting Host is installed (standard in Windows 98 and Windows 2000 installations). If security settings for Internet Zone in IE5 are set to High, the worm will not be executed. It does not run on Windows NT." ZDNet also has a story about this "Bubbleboy" virus. Update: McAfee weighs in too. (Thanks, Jade.) Consider yourself warned.
