Many messages from mailing lists and forums are infected with viruses

The following message is not directly related to Israel or the Middle East, but I thought I'd post it to warn my readers.

A few days ago one of my friends lost all of his email due to a virus that hit his computer. He received the virus from one of the mailing lists he subscribes to, which got me thinking...

After doing some research I decided to purchase Norton Antivirus 2002 (retails at $45.00) for the following features:

- Scans and cleans incoming and outgoing e-mail
- Identifies and stops new script-based viruses
- Removes viruses without interrupting your work
- Automatic updates to protect you from the latest viruses

I installed it on my main server and to my surprise I found out I receive 2-3 messages infected with viruses daily! Many of the messages come from the multiple mailing lists and forums I subscribe to, but some come from individuals as well.

I also found a great deal on Amazon.com - if you purchase the downloadable version of Norton Antivirus you get a $20 rebate, bringing the cost down to $24.99.

Click here to see this deal (this offer is available for a limited time only) - and I strongly suggest you get an antivirus if you don't have one.
