Just thought I'd like to warn anyone who's received an attachment known as "Snoopy.pif". This morning, I received that in my email from a source called "hr-hyatt", whatever the hell that is. Fortunately, I have not opened it since it looked suspicious, and a quick search on the 'Net reveals that it's apparently a worm virus.
If you receive something like this - DO NOT even attempt to open it - just stick it in the Recycle bin and get rid of it!

Its all very well saying that you never open e-mails and attachments from someone you don't know, but you probably get more from people you DO know. Love Bug, that went around last year, was spread via people's address books so you never really know.
Your virus protection is your best friend but only if you keep it updated!
