I've just had a look at a MS-Word document sent as an attachment to an
e-mail to me from
"ravin ra468656 at singent.com.sg"
which seems to contain the "Ripper" virus (whatever that might be). As
the text of the message seems innocent enough (regarding
crystallization), you might get lulled into a sense of false security.
I haven't actually tracked the virus down to this message *yet*, but it
is the only new file on my PC that I haven't created in the last couple
Just thought I'd let you know...
