Exclamation 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:

Status: U

Subject: Spice girls' vocal concert

MIME-version: 1.0
Content-type: multipart/alternative; boundary=X5905CuXvv4FnFJ42z4r5
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.

KarlGriffiths is still being judged by the masses


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

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.
