Rebol abuse - rebol virus??

 [1/4] from: doug:vos:eds at: 27-Jan-2004 11:07

Got a few message this morning talking about worm_mimail.r Noticed the R extension on the file. Has anyone heard anything about a virus with a .R file extension today? - Doug

it is a new worm I do not think it would have much of a chance spreading as far and as fast if it relied on people already having REBOL installed on their machines. hmmm attacking SCO -- prolly for their lawsuit against Linux... On Tue, 27 Jan 2004, Vos, Doug wrote:

Re: Rebol abuse - rebol virus?? worm_mimail.R R is only the revision of the Virus, not its file extension. The Q version was "discovered" yesterday, so this one is the newer newer one. Didec
