Nope. We, thank Ghu or the Deity of your choice, don't have Outlook
Visual Basic. However, it IS one of several VB e-mail virii that are
floating about.  One of the current modes of propagation is blind
mailing via listserv's such as PSN.  I've forwarded the example on to
CERT - even though it's been seen in the wild before and most virus
checkers will catch it, CERT needed to know it's attempting to go
around again.
