Hi guys,

I've received many messages related to a presumed message that I would 
have sent that has a subject starting with "The Macintosh deliverable will 
consist".

First, and more importantly, let me say that that message is infected with 
the "library.bat" attachment.

Second, I do not know by which mechanism that propagated, but I've never 
composed or even sent that message.

Take this seriously, my Windows 98 system has been erased. Run your virus 
detection on all your e-mails, and you should be freed from troubles.

I must reiterate my complete frustration towards Microsoft approach that 
permits such situations. I used to pay attention not to open any 
attachment from any unknown source, but now, it seems that it is not 
enough. I am really left with the only option to use a mac for e-mail 
readings.

Once again, I am sorry for the trouble caused by that low-life that had 
nothing to do and coded a worm for his own sick minded purposes. Be 
assured that I am not a participant in any conscious way and, as a good 
Internet citizen, I had my virus protection up to the latest possible 
version.

Good luck.

Philippe Roy
