If you have been living in a cave, nasty virus hitting lots of places/people. Also, can install a silent keylogger with remote access to steal passwords, etc. Can come as a zip, screensaver file from someone you know. Be careful..

If I've told you once...I've told you at least once...

NEVER OPEN ANY UNSOLICITED E-MAIL WITH AN ATTACHMENT...ALSO TURN OFF THE PREVIEW PANE

Contact the 'sender' first and ask them what is in the e-mail...If they did not send it, delete it, and then delete it from the 'deleted' file...

One of the problems with this one is, that in addition to pulling addresses out of an address book to send out, it uses one of the addresses as the sender. So, its possible that the sender on the email is not infected.

If you contact the 'sender' and they say they didn't SEND you anything, then you KNOW it is a virus...Almost all virii now behave the same way...

I (just for &^$%$ and giggles) run a box I don't give a rats butt about on the net for weeks at a time without AV software on it...I have NEVER been infected when following the simple rules I described in my first post...

Sometimes...I really do know what I am talking about...LMAO

Salmoneye, Who Sometimes Infects A Box Just To See What It Does

PS.....Get and use 'SpyBot Search & Destroy' and 'ZoneAlarm FREE Personal Firewall'...Way more important than AV software ever will be...As long as you don't go willy-nilly opening e-mails and attachments...

Thanks Walt, I read some on that earlier today but, because of your post I went and updated my virus software. Just trying to stay ahead of the idiots.
