I suffered KLEZ attack few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was a week after
setting new comp, and no antivirus program installed at that time.

The mail was received from a known sender, within email ham list. However,
his address title was little different than usual, but it didn;t ring any
bells to me. This email came to me on March 5th at about 2300. KLEZ attacked
at 0000 on March 6th (as he promissed :-)) and I noticed funny noises
between my root disk and remote one, as they made love... I shut them down
and waited for  the morning explanation from F6GNZ who warned us that Klez
was there.

Results = all my JPG, DOC, XLS and TXT files were gonne.

Now I use NAV2002 regularly updated, Netscape rather than Microsoft, and
still registered one KLez attempt few days ago.

So, better be very carefull.
