We have received a warning of a new virus from our computer support department at work, they sent a specimen of what it looks like and it appears to have a Christmas card to open. The virus is Reeezak and according to our IT department it can delete Office files in your computer AS IT OPENS. Snopes doesn't mention that but does confirm that it is a real virus.
Wow - I have just followed Snopes' link to Symantec and it DOES delete lot of different files including your virus software, it also disables your keyboard and many other nasty things.
Excuse me for a short time while I update my virus protection, it hasn't been done for a few days.
