Re: Virus on McKinney Email attachments

To All:
Sorry for spreading the flu.  Our big push for the year end is now over and we are in the process of receiving Norton Antivirus for our central system.  In the meantime, there isn't much we can do.  The sample programs from Symantec and MacAphee that can be downloaded from their web sites are old releases (Nov/98) that don't recognize the Ethan Fromme virus (circa Jan/99).  We'll make an announcement to "support" when we're all protected.

Subject: Virus on McKinney Email attachments

Each time I receive an email attachment from Susan or Tracy or Larry, or whomever down there, when I open the file I get an "ethan allen" virus that my norton utility picks up.  This probably isn't serious, but in the last email with two chicago zip files, there were 46 files with the virus that I had to de-louse prior to being able to access this.  My computer crashed twice during the process.  Could someone in McKinney look at Tracy or Susan's machine and run a Norton scan on it to avoid the proliferation of these.
