    I just read on www news website that there is a new worm/trojan on the WWW. Its sent via emails, and is propagating through infected computers emails on and on. It enables even the remote usage of your computer, so be aware - I already received around 5 emails with attachments saying

    "The message cannot be represented in 7-bit ASCII encoding and has been sent as a binary attachment."

    Or something like that, and there is an attachment - I didn't open it, but it matches the description of what I read on today's news.

    I have lots of protection, and I do not trade from PC that I use email and internet from, but still it can be unpleasant.. I am not pro in security issues...:cool:

    surf save and good trading all!

    Thanks for the tip.

    I would have chosen a more visible forum than chit-chat for this though.

    I dont know - lots of articles are on this already - its beating the speed records of spreading through email. I read that every 12 email sent at the moment contains virus. I received 13 new emails in last 90 mins. All over since it started in the afternoon - around 30-40...
