Latest E-Mail Worm warning

I got a bunch of e-mails from folks, so I take it either our e-mail providers or our (some of us) personal machines have been infected.

I just deleted about four (4) suspect e-mail from my Yahoo account and have not received any at my .Mil account.

Check your antivirus updates.

for info.


I've got my protective red and green "socks" on, how about you?

(The reason I suspect the provider is because of what appears to be several "relaying" attempt through my Yahoo account and I'm "right certain" I don't have the "bug".)

    Dave. I've been getting them too. I'm not infected but whoever is has my email address on their pc. The virus sends emails to addresses they have from addresses they have. So people think you sent them a virus. The emails contain viruses. The also modify the first name in the address. So if your in someones email as dave@blabla.com it might send to/from jane@blabla.com

    My norton Antivirus picks them up but its a pain in the ass to delete 50 or more emails at a time.

    I've had two alerts tonight of a back door Trojan trying to get in. The ISP is 217.217.137.216... from Spain! I'd like to send him/her a 10K volt surge and blow his/her browswer to Mars! [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
