BS. I am having the same problem and I don't have the GAY99 virus. No
ska.dll, ska.exe, or wsock32.ska. So give out some real help and not
some gay MS propaganda.

If you get this newsgroup from Microsofts Newsserver, you wont see it
as the AV software (Inoculan LAN) already has removed it.
However not all Newsservers have Virus protection.
They ought to, but that is another matter.
