Klez.E is the most common world-wide spreading worm.It’s very dangerous by corrupting your files.
Because of its very smart stealth and anti-anti-virus technic,most common AV software can’t detect or clean it.
We developed this free immunity tool to defeat the malicious virus.
You only need to run this tool once,and then Klez will never come into your PC.
NOTE: Because this tool acts as a fake Klez to fool the real worm,some AV monitor maybe cry when you run it.
If so,Ignore the warning,and select ‘continue’.
If you have any question,please mail to me.

that is the entire thing that I copied…

I belive I may have just sent myself klez…

You have just gotten a taste of how the RPGC staffers live…

And BTW, the plural of virus is “virii”.

The plural is viruses, but he didn’t spell it like that either.

By the looks of it you just fell for the oldest trick in the book. A virus posing to be a virus warning: No serious security company issues those, at least, not unless you have asked them to.

Klez is detectable by anti-virus programs. That’s why I installed one on all my workstations the moment I signed up for a shrine here: Knowing the tremendous amount of viruses that gets transmitted to emails officialised here.

Visit Norton.com, or some other security webpage: I’m sure they have something that can help you get rid of klez, should your computer be infected by it.

I didn’t open the file… Mail2world luckily dosen’t auto open items when the e-mail is opened.
