That leads to the message from one of the SYMANTEC virus
researchers: "treat e-mails with attachments always as someone who rings at
your door in the middle of the night: don't let him in!"
If you receive e-mails with attachments from persons you don't know, delete
them, if you know the persons, ask yourselve if you are WAITING for that e-
mail. If not sure, give them a call and ask them, what it is. If you
hear "I don't know, I got it myselve today but it looks interesting", maybe
you should not double click it...
