In a posting a few days ago Andÿ said that if you delete or preview an e-mail, with this virus attached, it may cause the virus to run, if you do not have the relevant MS patch applied (even if you don't open the attachment).
In the same discussion Mac & Beth referred to the MS patch in question (MS01-027).
I am a little confused: The MS patch relates to Internet Explorer not Outlook Express. How can a change to IE affect how your OE will function?
Also the patch relates to IE 5.5 sp1, I use IE 5.5 sp2. Do I need to worry, or is the problem fixed in sp2?
I hope this makes sense.
