The first sign of this virus was in Israel, on June 6th.  It's transmitted
via email, by replying to unread emails with a file attachment. The virus is
rather simple, it uses the CreateFile() function in the WinAPI to render the
noted files useless.  Pretty neat huh? <g>

 But ... it's *transmitted* ONLY by M$ mail systems, though it will
in fact damage any recipient foolish enough to execute the payload.
