View Full Version : irritating virus



22-04-2002, 08:52 PM
I keep getting (6 in the last 10 minutes) some blank (subject but no content) emails. My antivirus (innoculate) doesn't find any problem. They are all addressed to a valid email address on my web site (www.naturaltint.com)
Do you think someone who has listed that address in their address book might have e virus and I am one of the recipients?
Thanks
Sally

Can you tell who they are coming from? All from the same person? It could be simple incompetence. Worry about the ones with enclosures ...

I think that someone with that kres (?) virus has my email address on their address book. They are all from different addresses - and mostly with subjects that look kosher (apart from a japenese lasses one that had my name in the subject too). If I respond then the email is returned as undeliverable. I have not opened any attachments and my recently updated anti virus software has not reported any problems. So I am just going to hope that it all stops soon.
