Attention Rage3d Staff

Over the last few days I have been getting emaisl from your staff that have contained questionable material.

I have tried to email reply these to warn of a possible infection but have not heard back and the flood continues. Well not a flood really about 4 emails a day.

Mr. B today for the first time the email came as if from you. The header is posted below:

The files incudes are Dpsw.exe and video[2].htm

If this is a legitimate email then I am sorry, however I am fairly certain this is a virus and I felt I should warn you. It could also be spoofing you guys as the sender and this should be made known to you as well.

It's a virus I'm afraid. I remember getting a virus repedetly attack one of my email address, and as an effect I had to give up the address. One of the emails I got was from the South-West Govt for Dartmoor preservation. Nice to know you're appriciated by then for a change :D

Spoofed senders.

get yourself an email virus scanner. I use Norton AV 2002 (since it came free with my mobo). It does the job, though I'm sure there are probably better alternatives.
