Angry w32/Ganda@MM virus alert.

You guys might be aware of this virus already, but today was the first time it was sent to me. Usually the size of the file is a give away as to which virus arrived, but this one was 66KB, so I clicked on it because of the nature of the message that was with it. (in hotmail it automatically gets virus checked by Macafee and even if it is "safe", you still get the option to download or not)

The reason why I decided to look into it was because of this.

Hello! My 12 year old doughter received this screensaver on a CDROM that was sent to her through advertising. I find it disturbing that children are now being targets of nazi organizations. I would appreciate to hear from you on this matter, as soon as possible. Thank you.
That scared me for a bit, thinking it was something to do with ads on my site that he was referring to.

If you check this link, http://vil.mcafee.com/dispVirus.asp?virus_k=100153 you will see many variants of messages that might arrive with the virus.

People can be so darned sick
