Virus new letter bomb

DEBILITATING computer viruses are becoming the letter bombs of the next millennium.

The Melissa, Ethan A, Worm and new Wobbler viruses have hit Austral-ian companies according to a survey by Morgan & Banks division MBT.

MBT business manager Australia Matthew Gordon said 61 per cent of firms identified the source of the virus and 53 per cent reported catching the virus from the internet or emails.

“More than half said they lost time because of the virus and 24.1 per cent said they lost work,” Mr Gordon said.
