Not sure I should go "click" here??

I've been able to dodge the bullit so far ... should I go click and read the site? Zero on this 'crap' for years and now 5 wacks in a little over a week.

What does this one do? Or do I want to know?

W32/Goner@mm will make mincemeat of our system.

Many large companies got this little bugger in the past few days so "BE VERY CARFULL OUT THERE." Appears the first thing it does is go after you anti-virus programs and firewalls. Eliminates them and then it really goes to work. Because this 'worm' is/was so new no ones system picked up until it was already installed and doing 'it's thing.'

Would 15 years in the Gray Bar Hotel be enough?


I'm passing this forward as either the bank's Lotus scan of incomeing E mails, or my home system, has caught 5, count'um 5! virus shots in my e mails in the past week. "Be careful out there!"

W32/Goner@MM, also known as Pentagone, Goner or Gone. This

email and ICQ instantmessaging programs. This mass-mailing

I am in a harry, I promise you will love it!

Attachment: GONE.SCR

Goner has a DESTRUCTIVE PAYLOAD. When the attachment is
opened, it will look for a variety of anti-virus, firewall
and other security programs and attempt to delete them,

contains instructions to attempt Denial-of-Service attacks
