[MOL] Got this warning today...



if you are an AOL user and you get mail from anyone on AOL including me that 
says @aol.com after the screen name DO NOT DOWNLOAD that piece of mail.  It 
will not be from that person that you think is sending it to you.  
    There is an exec file going around called "Funprog.exec" and it contains 
the CIH virus.  If you receive it, DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT.  
    
    But here is the worst part of it.  This virus is being sent out from 
names you know.  Somehow they found a way to use other peoples screen names 
and send out mail.  If you are an AOL user and you get mail from anyone on 
AOL including me that says @aol.com after the screen name DO NOT DOWNLOAD 
that piece of mail.  It will not be from that person that you think is 
sending it to you.  
    
     
    AOL is very aware of what is going on right now.  Please do not download 
anything.  I rather all of us be safe than sorry, until AOL fixes this 
problem.  
  For example, the mail would look like this:
  Subj: EXEC Warning
  Date: 10/03/1999 8:12:13 PM Eastern Daylight Time
  From: Dianedeoc@aol.com
  My mail would never say @aol.com since i am an AOL member...that's the give 
away!
      Please forward this letter to all your friends.......
