If, as I did, you get a message in your email box today with the subject line saying, “Here you have”, do not open it and delete it from your inbox immediately.
A significant percentage of corporate email users in the United States are being deluged with a strong and quickly spreading virus today that appears to be from somebody in your company and/or contact list. The email implies that they are sending you a link to a document . The body of the virus laden message reads, “Hello: This is The Document I told you about, you can find it Here.http://www.sharedocuments.com/.
While the origin of the ‘here you have’ email virus is not yet known, nor is it the extent of its spread known, it is clear that a large number of email inboxes, mostly on corporate email systems have been infected with it.
The motivation of some to create email viruses is not always clear. More often than not, it is a prank, albeit it a serious one as it saps productivity and could cause widespread network problems if not handled the right way.
As the country faces the ‘here you have’ email virus today, hopefully the word is spreading to as many people as possible to delete the message without opening it. Opening it will generally result in everybody in your contact list getting the message sent to them…allowing the ‘here you have’ email virus to continue its spread before being shut down.Source: Twitter.com
