Other people say you have a virus!

Next to an anti-virus utility, the most reliable source for determining that you have a virus is other people—and you’d better believe they will let you know if you have one. The first time a worm (destructive program designed to propagate itself across a network) seizes your email application and distributes itself to every name in your address book, for instance, you undoubtedly will receive numerous messages and phone calls from friends and colleagues to tell you what happened. The same is true if you try to share a file infected with a macro virus (virus that exists within a data file, such as a text document or spreadsheet).
