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. http://www.disasternews.net/news/news.php?articleid=2144 http://www.overclockersclub.com/newscomment.php?article=7518375 http://news.netcraft.com/archives/2004/01/27/fastmoving_virus_launches_ddos_on_sco.html hmmm attacking SCO -- prolly for their lawsuit against Linux...

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

That sounds like a reasonable explanation.
