>>>    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.
