Warning: New computer worm
Posted May 19, 2000; 10:17 a.m.
A new destructive worm, "NEWLOVE," has been reported which, like the variants of the "ILOVEYOU" virus, attacks those who use Microsoft Outlook for e-mail.
While there have been no sightings reported on the Princeton University campus, those who use Outlook are urged to take precautions and contact the known senders of any suspicious e-mail before attempting to open the messages. CIT has installed a filter intended to capture messages with the worm.
