Hi all

IF YOU'RE USING WINDOWS, PLEASE READ:

Myself and several other BritDisc subscribers are receiving an  
increasing number of virus-carrying email messages. I now get 24  
messages a day, each containing a 150k attachment (that's 3MB in  
total). The attachment contains a computer virus.

The messages are likely to be emanating from an Ultimate player's  
machine, since one of the common subject lines is "Mixed Tour III -  
lost visor"

It appears to be caused by a PC (or a number of PCs) infected with  
the W32.BLACKMAL at E virus, which first appeared on the scene in  
January this year.

Please, if you're using Windows, use the following link to check your  
machine and clear the virus off it if necessary:

w32.blackmal.e at mm.html


Thanks and sorry to put you all to so much trouble.

Paul
