Virus hits Southport.

The was discovered:  on 4  November 2001 and has now hit Southport and the UK as it awoke on Monday It has hit a large amount of businesses throughout Southport and the UK -  I received 200 emails alone  containing a virus called "W32/Badtrans@MM"  from businesses throughout Southport.  It manages to get through a lot of email virus checkers.  So UPDATE your systems defenses now.

This outbreak in the UK originated from the support team at BT Openworld at the weekend.  The virus spreads via your email address book, but it hits AOL users as well!   There are several versions out there called "W32/BadTrans@M"  & "W32/Badtrans.eml" This new version "MM"  drops a worm in to your system (A program that eats its way into other programs).  This worm looks for passwords, stealing them and then attempts to mail the victim's IP Address to the author.   Once this information is obtained, the author can connect to the infected system via the Internet and steal personal information such as usernames, and passwords. But it can also allow the copying and access to credit card and bank account numbers and passwords.  This nice virus also uses Microsoft Outlook and other systems like Outlook, by replying to unread email messages on your system.
