I thought a previous posting to this list had said that the
"KAK" virus worked because of a loophole in the Outlook
Express program, and that Microsoft had a patch which
closed the loophole, rendering "KAK" and any future virus
which tried to use that loophole powerless...
Does anyone else remember this?
I'm sure I went to the relevant URL and downloaded the
patch (I use Outlook Express on another machine at home).
