The Resume Virus is out. It's the latest and greatest. It is a Word Macro virus and will attach to all in your address book. Does this sound familiar, well it is... This is a newer version of the Melissa virus of old. Apparently, it is a bit hairier than the original, but it should be pretty easy to protect against, considering it is a variation of an existing virus.
