Greetings. I am the sender of the suspect viral attachment, which . I
have been consulting with the University of Michigan's "Virus-Busters"
about this situation. They have advised me that the hybris worm virus can
only infect PCs. The suspect document was generated by me on my previous
Mac, copied to and sent from new Mac. [It was NOT forwarded to me by email
from another party, nor have I been sharing files, etc.-- apparently that's
the only way a Mac can become a PC virus carrier.] Updated Virex gave my
machine a clean bill of health. It's always best to remain alert; but
Virus-Busters say it's virtually impossible for my attachment to have
carried that virus. Still, it was very considerate of our colleague to
post his concern. Sorry for any inconvenience.
