Worm Klez.E Immunity.....WTF???

Hi Folks,
Is anybody else getting any E-mails with this "Worm Klez.E Immunity" in the subject line? I've been getting several of them a week for about the past three weeks, the names always appear to be like forum names...with Z71, 4x4, CJ7 or zuki, etc, etc, in the title....maybe just a wild coincidence, but I was just wondering if anybody else is getting them like me. I surfed around a bit looking for info on it, and apparently its a virus called Klez_H, that of course is an e-mail infectant. My Norton hasn't picked it up if I have it, and I just downloaded a free virus clean program that didn't find it either...then again, I haven't been opening the so titled e-mails either. Just wondering if its really widespread, as it doesn't seem to be going away.

It's a virus. Delete anything with that in the subject line basically.

Klez worms in general are a really bad deal. I just had a run in with the W32Klez.E version. Man o man that made for a long night. Be careful, this particular series can activate without actually opening any attachments to e-mails. They are also designed to attack virus protection programs right off the bat. Just keep deleating any e-mails of that nature, and get a hold of everyone you know who has you on there e-mail list, someone out there may have said worm and doesn't know about it yet.
