There’s another virus travelling around quickly this morning. It’s similar to the Anna Kournikova “Love Bug” virus – annoying but it doesn’t damage your computer. The “Homepage” virus will arrive in a message from someone you know, with the subject line “Homepage.” The attachment is a .vbs visual basic script that opens a porno web site on your computer and sends the message on to everyone in your Outlook address book. Don’t open file attachments, eh? Here’s an article with more information. I’ve become a big fan of the Outlook e-mail security update, which blocks certain kinds of attachments – especially .EXE and .VBS attachments.
