Anyone else get the lovely VIRUS email??

Well, I was just wondering who else here might have received the message about an your email acount being "temporarily disabled because of unauthorized access??"

Yeah, I got it three times. And I know that my email was harvested from the 3 forums (or someone that has my personal email from here). So I just thought I'd like to remind everyone that this is why you should constantly update your virus definitions. The default for Norton Antivirus is once per month, and that's sad. Ideal would be several times a day, but at least twice a week.

For those curious, this is actually where the message comes from:

Tue, 2 Mar 2004 23:51:48 -0600 (CST)
Received: from Matilda (c-67-173-131-242.client.comcast.net [67.173.131.242])


It also has Return-Path: <[email protected]> in the header, but I don't know that the message would be accurate on that account. It's probably a dummy email to flood another account.

BE SAFE!! LAY OFF THE PORN!!

Not exactly that. But last week I got a bunch of returned emails I didn't send..... 2 days in a row.

interesting. i've been getting emails from "microsoft" telling me to update my patches . haha, i'm not that stupid-microsoft doesn't have my email address, nor do they care enough to actually send out emails about patches. and now i have an antivirus software and it confirmed that it was a virus. kept my computer virus free for a year and a half without any virus software whatsoever. all it takes is paying attention to what you are doing.

In the last month I have received over 300 e-mails either containing a virus or telling me I sent someone a virus. This is in my personal inbox where the number of e-mails I normally receive in one month never exceeds 100 previous to these worms.
