Stupid Viruses...........

Submitted by scott on 03/08/2004 at 19:39. ( )

I have been getting tons of viruses and one that was sent that said it was from John C.Just checking John if this was from you.It appears that someone is using my address book to send viruses and it looks like they are sent from me.I get delivery reports that say it came from me and then there are messages that are sent to me.I ran the virus scan but it isn't picking it up.Any suggestions? I apologize if anyone is getting them from my email.

Always causing trouble! ;)

People can fake email addies when they send stuff. Be they real addies or fictional ones - they can enter other names. Try right clicking then hitting properties and seeing if the actual addy matches the name.

I keep getting viruses from various addies. I OWN and this is the only place I ever use that account. People enter fake trillium-hills names and send me viruses from my own .com LOL from email addies that don't exist.

Similar problem

I had a similar virus about a year ago, it went thru my address book and sent out the virus IN everyones name that was in my book TO everyone that was in my book, I even received one from ME!...

Don't freak out yet...

If your Virus definitions are up to date and you're coming up clean, then my guess is that somebody whom you communicate with regularly probably has a virus. Watch the message "Delivery Failure" too. I almost opened one the first time I THOUGHT one of my messages bounced back...

I ran scans from two different sources, no bugs.

You can bet one thing I do check daily for updates and I have firewalls. Sure they can be beat, but its doughtfull.

I send e-mails from mostly once email account and I know the server has thier own Viruse scans.

I did a little trick a few days ago and Jay/Bob bought it hook line and sinker. He should be opening his own modified bug if not already done so.

Additionally Since I send from the one source with exceptions on two people that read this board. Email me if you are the Scott I am dealing with.

Another thing thats sweet really sweet about this setup of networks at my house, is the other computer is used for specific accounts and it runs two other Viruse scans.
