Short Take: New virus caution issued

Antivirus firms are cautioning about a new virus, so far only in France, called Pretty Park. It spreads as an email attachment, then sends emails with the virus attached to addresses in the user's Microsoft Outlook file. It also posts passwords, phone numbers, and identifying information about a user's PC on certain Internet chat sites. However, Trend Micro, which has posted a fix, can't make the virus replicate in its lab. N etwork Associates rates the risk as low. Syman tec posted its fix earlier this week.
