Subject: Andy and Werner Were Right--I Was Wrong--Probably
Regarding the "WinWord attachments," John W. forwarded me the original
messages. They arrived the same way they did originally: with no introduction
followed by garbage (once I saw them, I remembered deleting them). John
assures me they are uudecodable at his site. This time, I tried two
uudecoders and a MIME reader, and got nothing but errors everytime. It seems
likely that these messages arrived at some sites as WinWord attachments, at
some sites as uuencoded ASCII, and at some sites as garbage. I still hope to
decode them to see if they have the virus, but if they are uuencoded WinWord
documents then they probably have the virus as well.
Drat. I hate being wrong, particularly in front of 5,000 of my peers.
