There's another nasty virus going around.. tries to grab your credit-card details. Info here thanks Pak and here thanks Iroquois.

Simon warns about another one, that sounds different: The virus once activated the virus enumerates all corporate domains and printers in those domains and sends multiple print jobs to those printers until the printer is exhausted of paper. I cant pin
point this to an identified virus yet. The file that is being printed is al squiggles in the format of an executable file (starting with "MZE"). If any of your readers have large networks with lots of printers they may want to set NT level security on their printers to only allow print jobs from specified local locations/domain NT groups.

Yet another one here from Iroquois. I think that one is old news tho, I've been getting those emails for a while now.
