On March 2, 2004, Symantec-leader in anti-virus research technology-has reported another dangerous virus which has greatly affected the integrity of the Internet.
This virus is a very misleading Category 3 mass-mailing worm which may appear to come from "The Sodabush.com team" or other organizations. Its goal is to trick the reader into opening an attachment which appears to come from legitimate organizations.
This virus has been named W32.Beagle.*@mm. For more information about this virus please visit the Symantec Antivirus Research Center (SARC):
THIS VIRUS HAS NOT BEEN SENT FROM OUR SYSTEMS!
We implore everyone who receives an e-mail from SodaBush.com containing an attachment to delete it—immediately. As a practice, we do NOT send attachments in our e-mail messages. If it becomes necessary for us to get you some form of a file, we will direct you to our site (SodaBush.com).
Remember, it's everyone's responsibility to install and update anti-virus software. Stay safe everyone!!
