I've received it, the extension is deceptive with a name.doc.bat
handle. Clearly it is grabbing names out of various folks email
In asking for advice I did what I knew would be useless, and replied:
"Never open executables sent by email, even allegedly by friends."
I offer that same advice. Again this has a "bat" extension.

Turns out to be the W32/SirCam Virus. I'm surprised none of you are
getting hit. I've recieved over 20mb worth of it in the past 3 days.
But since it's apparently a general virus rather than a specific attack
