Re: filmscanners: ADMIN : VIRUS warning - Sircam worm

Hi Tony,

I've received almost thirty instances of the virus in the last three days. 
My Norton AntiVirus definitions dated July 18 picked up every one and 
safely quarantined them. I've been wondering if any of the forums were 
going to post this. We've had two clients catch the virus and almost every 
program on their computer refused to run. Norton's now has a downloadable 
executable to delete the virus from infected computers.
