You can find out more information about the Happy99.exe virus at the
following URL:


Apparently, CORALations reads email via a Windows operating system, and
that system was infected.  The worm operates by detecting a send message
from the host (Windows) operating system, then sends a uuencoded
Happy99.exe document to the same recipient as the last send message went
to.  If you received the uuencoded message, just don't uudecode it and
execute it--delete it!

I would urge all coral-list subscribers to check their operating systems
frequently for viruses, worms, etc.

	Sincerely yours,
