A new Trojan Horse Virus has emerged on the Internet with the name
PKZIP300.ZIP.  It was named as such so that the file would pass as a 
new version of PKZIP software, a file compression utility from PKWare.

We are warning all our subscribers NOT TO DOWNLOAD THE FILE PKZIP300.ZIP
under any circumstances.  The virus has been known to wipe out the entire 
hard disk clena and affect modems at 14.4 and higher.  This is an extremely 
destructive virus of which there is no cure for the moment.
