URGENT!! Virus Warnings! #belarus

A new virus is spreading, and some send out warnings against it.
it is:
NAME: Creative
ALIAS: Prolin, Shockwave, W32/Prolin@mm
ALIAS: TROJ_SHOCKWAVE, TROJ_PROLIN

However, it is simply not possible to send out warnings against
every new virus/worm/trojans. Since the above was diagnosed and
warnings were being sent out, a new one has appeared
NAME: BleBla
ALIAS: Romeo-and-Juliet, Romeo, Juliet, Verona, IWorm_Blebla,
I-Worm.Blebla

The only safe thing you can do is to guard yourself >from virus-attacks
by having a good virus-protection program and preferably also a virus-
shield.

Furthermore, check out one of the many excellent websites, that bring
information about all the new viruses, such as:

These websites enable you to check something out in seconds - just a
click away! So play it safe: take the time to visit them regularly.
Here are some URLs:

http://www.datafellows.com/virus-info/
http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/hoax.html

And if you send out virus-warnings to a friend or two
---(don't ask to copy and send the warnings to ---
---everybody in the address book, as that might ---
---be considered a hoax, spam and chain letter!)---
but to a few friends or colleagues you can send the warning with
a remedy and explanation.
Without the latter a warning is not of much use!
And you can find the remedy at the above mentioned websites.

So virus warnings should not be sent to the JewishGen mailing lists.
