Claim: A free immunity tool will protect your PC from the Klez.E virus.
Examples: [Collected on the Internet, 2002]
Origins: The messages quoted above are correct in noting that Klez is a common worm which is currently spreading and infecting computers world-wide, but they contain no "immunity tools" that will protect your PC from Klez. Far from it: in classic "trojan horse" fashion, these messages (bearing a subject line of "Worm Klez.E Immunity") are disguises that trick unsuspecting users into executing their attachments — attachments which don't protect against the Klez virus but actually spread it.
See the links below for more information about how to detect and remove the Klez.H virus.
