There is a new virus going around and they use Flash to spread it.

TROJ SHOCKWAVE.A is a Portable Executable (PE) Trojan that is currently spreading via email. This Trojan drops a copy of itself in the Windows Startup folder such that it is executed at every Windows start up. Upon execution, this Trojan renames all JPG and ZIP files and moves them to the C:\ root directory.

A sample of the email this Trojan arrives in is as follows:

Subject: A great Shockwave flash movie
Message Body: Check out his new flash movie that I download just now...It is Great.

Attachment: CREATIVE.EXE

Hope this helps someone.

Hi kirill. Let me just remind you that there was a day in which you had to be shown how to do something as simple as use a mouse and send a simple e-mail. People are learning about computers everyday. Kids, adults, seniors...

To sit there and assume that everyone is born instinctivly with this knowledge that these attachments are bad, is in of itself a joke.

I know, no...I work everything out myslef.. oh I dont care I take it back, but still its not like the media has not made it clear that attachements are dangeraus, CNN? BBC? don't people watch those any more? They made a great follow up with the lovebug, it was like everywhere, radio, tv, I even got warning e-mail's about it. So people should be aware.
