Navidad virus carries an early holiday surprise for MS users

Author: JT Smith

IDG.com reports that users receive Navidad via e-mail in the form of an attachment with the name
NAVIDAD.EXE. Users receive the attachment as a reply message to an
e-mail sent to an infected user. Once the virus has infected a PC, it prevents
users from launching any programs of the .EXE type, which includes basic
applications such as Microsoft Word. Navidad is the Spanish word for
Christmas.
