Owing to the recent thread about a screen saver for SCD, I thought it was
appropriate to warn list members that there is a new virus circulating which
masquerades as a screen saver.

The email arrives with subject "Hi" and has the Message: "How are you ?
When I saw this screen saver, I immediately thought about you I am in a
harry, I promise you will love it! " and an attachment called GONE.SCR. See
http://www.sophos.com/virusinfo/analyses/w32gonera.html for more
information. (I just found out about it because I just received 2 emails
from people at work with the virus... seems to be quite new, Sophos has just
added it to their list of virus identities.)
