I've received it three times today as an attachment from firstname.lastname@example.org (whose messages I have now blocked; you might consider doing that in advance). It's morphed from an earlier Klez virus that Norton now can cope with. Don't let your Norton lapse--it always catches up eventually! Don't open attached Xmas greetings if you don't recognize the sender! This is not a nasty virus, one of those evil worm things, just prankish. In the earlier version, which I was also lucky enough to get, it (a) made me unable to get the Norton quarantine notice off my desktop (that is fixed); (b) cricket sounds, not unpleasant, turn up at irregular intervals, even when I'm playing music (that has just started up again, though I opened none of the attachments). Merry Christmas, every one, -alga > I received an e-mail this afternoon at 3:03 central time, subject line > "Happy Christmas" from list-member Stone Ox.
