Even that doesn't work. I was waiting for someone to send me a file at
work. I received the e-mail with an attachment as expected, however I
recognized the name of the attachment as a well known w-o-r-m. I used Norton
to verify that the file was infected. It had booted out the intended
attachment, and put itself in its place.
I don't know why Norton didn't catch it on it's own, but we dropped
Norton like a hot potato in our office after that.
