Someone says he got Bugbear virus in one of my emails.

How can it be possible?

How do find out if I have it?

People who have your email address in their address book, may have a virus that sends out viruses in e-mail addressed to anyone, using names/addresses from that person's infected address book.

I get "bounced" mail to people that I've never sent mail to, nor are they in my address book, with my name and email address being used as a return address.

Nasty bugs. . .

The latest version of the Bugbear virus was discovered June 4, and the NAV protection was released on 6-5 (yesterday). If you LiveUpdated before then, you might have a problem....

The Norton website has this info page on the virus:

http://www.sarc.com/avcenter/venc/data/ ... .b@mm.html

The also have a link on that page to a utility that will remove the virus. They recommend this as the easiest way to solve the problem.

Good luck...
