Another version of W32 has gotten through...



The W32/Magistr.b@MM or W32/Magistr.dam3 virus/worm was just sent through the 
dinosaur list,
this time from Jonathan Schmidt's (SCHMIDT <ashmidt@flash.net>) computer.

The subject line of the message was: However once he, now frost

The worm/virus was in an attachment apparently called "reaches.bat".

If you use a Windows machine and particularly if you use Outlook
Express or Netscape for e-mail, please make sure you have the latest
upgrades for your virus recognition software.  A couple of relevant
