Odd Email...

Has anyone else recieved a few emails containing the subject line, "First stands for For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology"????

I received a few of these in my hotmail account, coming from an email address "Engineering"<engineering@bemcor.com>

If you get this, it has an attached DOC file, or what looks like a doc file..... its a virus (W32/SirCam@MM Virus) .. so dont' download it.

Odd... just wondering if anyone else got this.

Tom

W32/SirCam@MM Virus Information

With my new job working as tech support for an ISP, I've actually seen a lot of this virus being sent to the customers lately. Here's some more info that I found at http://vil.nai.com/vil/virusSummary.asp?virus_k=99141

Name: W32/SirCam@MM
Risk Assessment: High

Spreads Via: E-Mail
This mass-mailing virus attempts to send itself and local documents to all users found in the Windows Address Book and email addresses found in temporary Internet cached files (web browser cache).

Attached to the e-mail will be a document with a double extension (the filename varies). The document is the virus itself, with an appended file found in the My Documents folder. For example, if the virus found a file named "FIRST General Info.doc" in the My Documents file, a possible file name that it would send would be "FIRST General Info.doc.bat" Files with the second extension of .com, .exe, .lnk, and .pif are also possible(basically anything that Windows will try to run.)

Aside from e-mail overloading, it might delete files on October 16 and/or fill up hard disk space by adding text entries over and over again to a sircam recycle bin file.

That's just a quick summary, look at the URL above for the whole story...

Virus Alert!

Virus Alert!

Bemcor is a subsidiary of the Beatty Companies and has been very involved with our robot building. Evidently a virus has gotton into our network, as it sent four messages to me and my son Brian's personal Email addresses. I do not know how it spread to some of you, but it appears to be pretty tenacious. Our apologies to all of you.

One thing we might want to do is if we get an e-mail that is from an infected computer send an e-mail to the sender telling them that their computer is infected and give them a link to a website with information about the virus.

Virus Update

This virus got into our LAN that covers both Beatty Machine and Bemcor. We discovered it over the holiday weekend. We do not believe that we spread any additional messages after Tues. morning. It took us three days to dismantle the lan and clean each user before reconnecting to the lan and Internet. When we reconnected, the virus was immediately received back to us, because many folks in our address books also had our addresses in them. As we receive virus messages back, we advise those users of the virus.

Evidently our virus software was out dated and I find that some of our users had disabled it because they felt it slowed them up. We now have the latest version of Norton on all of our equipment and it seems to be doing a good job. Again, our apologies.

Bill Beatty

I'm glad to hear that is cleared up. And since the topic of email viruses is up, I wanted to let evryone know that there is one going around with the subject pretaining to family pictures. I've gotten it a couple times from different addresses.
