Stop Using Outlook!

Okay, this has got to be the worst Microsoft security problem ever. If you use Outlook or Outlook Express, stop using it immediately until you get the fix. Info from Microsoft is here. The sad part of this bug is that you don't even have to open the message or an attachment to get infected ... you only have to recieve the message.

If you can access your mail through IMAP (you should be), do so .... and use another mail client that supports IMAP until the Outlook bug is fixed.
