|A VBS.KakWorm Virus has appeared in some users. It is considered a fairly tame virus because it does not do any permanent damage. To see if you have been infected go to Norton's AV site and download the file indicated. Or click here to get it now. It will tell you after running if your system had the bug or not. Also if you do allot of e-mailing you should be running a virus software of some type. There are free versions on the web. The best virus software I recommend is Norton's. Go to Eetronics Software for further information.|

VBS.KakWorm spreads using Microsoft Outlook Express. It attaches itself to all outgoing messages via the Signature feature of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer newsgroup reader.
The worm utilizes a known Microsoft Outlook Express security hole so that a viral file is created on the system without having to run any attachment. Simply reading the received email message will cause the virus to be placed on the system.
|Microsoft has patched this security hole. The patch
is available from Microsoft's website.
If you have a patched version of Outlook Express, this worm will not work automatically.
