<x-flowed>W97M.Melissa.BG is a Word 97 macro virus that
                has a payload of deleting necessary system files.
                It also sends itself out through e-mail using
                Microsoft outlook. The subject of the e-mail is
                "Resume - Janet Simons".

                Also known as: ResumeWorm, W97M.Resume.A

The FBI advised computer users not to open
        any e-mail with the ``Resume - Janet Simons''
        subject line, to deactivate the executive
        summary feature in Outlook, and then delete
        the e-mail without opening it.

        Both Symantec and Network Associates had
        posted updates to their anti-virus software to
        stop Killer Resume on their Web sites Friday.

        Computer users can also protect themselves by
        disabling the ``macro'' feature of their Word
        programs, Wee said.
