Unfortunately, I downloaded it and carelessly double-clicked the attached
file, and BANG! a perfectly new breed of virus called itself 'WIN95/MTX'
was loose and several program files in my c:\windows\system\ directory
were infected by it. No visible damage or error yet, but it made me busy
scanning my c:\ drive by Norton Antivirus and V3 (both powerful vaccine
programs) for hours! And although all the other files infected were
successfully repaired, only WSOCK32.DLL could NOT be repaired. So I
couldn't help deleting and replacing it by another uninfected copy of
the file gathered from my company's computer... <grr>
Now it seems that it was forever gone from my hard drive, but I'm still
a bit suspicious... Anyway, for the heaven's sake, NEVER DOWNLOAD IT AND
DELETE IT FROM YOUR MAILBOX IMMEDIATELY! I tell you, it's dangerous!!!
Thanks to Lim Jyue for warning. (But I couldn't see it in time, oh boy.:-<
