<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.
