Just received the following from Jay Chichon:

Hi Ted:

I wonder if you or anyone you know on the CBS email list have been
receiving emails with the Klez H virus attachment?
I myself and five others, that I know of on the CBS list, have
been receiving them on a daily basis for at least a month.
I think you know how the Klez H virus works....when anyone
opens the file that is attached, it infects the computer and goes
to the address book and takes an address at random and automatically
sends another virus email to that person using a FROM: address
also taken from the list. (Today I received a virus email with the
FROM: address "fschutz@juno.com".
The majority of the virus emails received have all contained the
senders address of various CBS Retirees.

It would seem that one or more of the retirees computers have been
infected with the Klez H virus and perhaps is not aware of it.

I wonder if it would be a good idea to post this information on
the Web Site so that the group is aware of this problem and they can
scan their computers for this virus.....especially those that might
have the CBS Retirees email list in their computer address book?


Best regards....Jay Chichon
