    FYI, yesterday and today I received alerts re new
    Tanatos worm, ...
    I just received a message at my astro address from (is he on seesat or dsat??)
    subject: [SBIG] NGC 2997
    size: 71000+kb
    I thought it was suspicious due to size but given the
    subject I assumed this was a valid attachment and decided
    to accept delivery, at which point two independent virus
    systems on my computer ID it as Tanatos and immediate froze
    and deleted it.  BEWARE, this was the best fooler re 
    "subject" that I have seen to date.
