virus in attached documents

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"

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 
of weeks.

Just thought I'd let you know...
