Actually it's the problem of word and email tightly meshed. Add to the
mix a programming language (VB macros) and you've got an open door to an
otherwise insecure system.

I run win3.1 and don't have Word so I have no problem. Though another OS
or better yet another processor would kill the bug straight out.
