Support @Messagelabs,

NV-L is an IBM technical forum  that I subscribe to. I have no idea why it
would display as a virus.

To help identify the virus:

Scanner 1 (NAI Virus Scan) reported the following:

        Found the W32/[email protected] virus !!!

The message was diverted into the virus holding pen on
mail server server-34.tower-1.london-2.starlabs.net (id 359754_1007701775)
and will be held for 30 days before being destroyed.

What should you do now?

If you sent the email from a corporate network, you should first 
contact your local Helpdesk or System Administrator for advice. 
They will be able to help you disinfect your workstation.

If you sent the email from a personal or home account, you will 
need to disinfect your computer yourself. To do this you will 
need an anti-virus program. We suggest using one of the leading 
industry anti-virus packages such as McAfee, F-Secure or Cybersoft, 
which cost ?15-?30 per copy.
