Novarg (MyDoom) Virus

There were quite a few problems with the Novarg virus today. It seems like no matter how hard you try to educate the end users about computer viruses.  People still click on attachments in e-mail.

I don’t know how you stop people from getting “click happy” when they are tricked in to launching attachments in e-mail.  Even when an e-mail comes from Bob down the hall.  If you are not expecting anything from Bob then delete the e-mail and apologize later. It’s just good policy to never open an attachment you are not expecting.

Unfortunately some people will open any e-mail attachment without any thought about it.  I say they are “click happy.” How do you combat this?
