Dear Q12-14/16 experts,

I have received the following message from a US registrant of this reflector
in response to my message regarding the update of Mr. Tosco's meeting
reports posted yesterday:

>> Hi Sakae !
>> I received your email and I shall send you a reply ASAP.
>> Till then, take a look at the attached zipped docs.
>> bye.
>> <<zipped_files.exe>>

I obediently tried to read the zipped_files.exe and all the Office files on
my Windows machine were destroyed.

This seems to be due to a new virus W32/ExploreZip. Please take care!

Best regards,
