>>> FCC WARNING!!!!! -----DEEYENDA PLAGUES INTERNET
>>> The Internet community has again been plagued by another computer
>>> virus. This message is being spread throughout the Internet,
>>> including USENET posting, EMAIL, and other Internet activities. The
>>> reason for all the attention is because of the nature of this virus
>>> and the potential security risk it makes. Instead of a destructive
>>> Trojan virus (like most viruses!), this virus referred to as Deeyenda
>>> Maddick, performs a comprehensive search on your computer, looking
>>> for valuable information, such as email and login passwords, credit
>>> cards, personal inf., etc.
>>> The Deeyenda virus also has the capability to stay memory resident
>>> while running a host of applications and operation systems, such as
>>> Windows 3.11 and Windows 95. What this means to Internet users is
>>> that when a login and password are send to the server, this virus can
>>> copy this information and SEND IT OUT TO UN UNKNOWN ADDRESS (varies).
>>> The reason for this warning is because the Deeyenda virus is
>>> virtually undetectable. Once attacked your computer will be unsecure.
>>> Although it can attack any O/S this virus is most likely to attack
>>> those users viewing Java enhanced Web Pages (Netscape 2.0+ and
>>> Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0+ which are running under Windows 95).
>>> Researchers at Princeton University have found this virus on a number
>>> of World Wide Web pagesand fear its spread.
>>> Please pass this on, for we must alert the general public at the
>>> security risks.
