Hi All.

Just thought I would let you all know that there is yet another new Email internet Virus about.

Called 'BugBear', it attaches itself to emails, and then sends to everyone in your address book.

Same old thing you think ??

Not this one. It makes a log of your credit / debit card details through transactions made on the net, and sends them back to the Virus creator. Apparently it came from the China or Malaysia area.

So be on the lookout and update your virus software.

Thanx for the heads up! I'll have to send an alert to everyone in work tomorrow :).

PENDO!

According to Norton Antivirus, this thing doesn't go after your CC numbers, instead it sends out your system passwords and allows access in. Looks pretty nasty.
