Just this a.m. my Norton AV detected the virus W32.sircam.worm.exe in an
incoming attached file named "ELKH-1.c.zip.com. The apparent source of the
email was an engineering firm in Bakersfield, CA. The text in the email
said "Hi, how are you? Would like to have your advice on this."
This virus and the accompanying email has been going around a lot. If you
get email containing the above or similar text, delete it immediately even
if you recognize the apparent sender!
Incidentally, the infected email came in on my AOL account and had no
involvement with MS Outlook.
