It's important to know that the virus in question (BadTransB) can
execute upon viewing the email message: it is not necessary to open
the attachment. Those with Internet Explorer 5.01 or 5.5 had better
download the patch provided by MS:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/critical/q290108/default.asp

or transmigrate to a less patchy software, to eliminate this
vulnerability.
