AOL and virus attachments

One of my users recently discovered a large number of contacts in his address book has received unwanted e-mails from him with a virused attachment.

His machine was found to have the Bck/Hupigon.AZG virus, which has subsequently been removed.  Since he uses AOL's on-line e-mail facility rather than a client such as Outlook, etc., I am somewhat surprised that AOL has no controls in place to prevent this occurance.

Comments anyone?


RE: AOL and virus attachments

I'm just glad I talked an acquaintance out of using AOL after YEARS of using it, and they're now using Gmail. They've had FAR less problems with SPAM, and a much more enjoyable email experience...
