Re: Someone on this list sends a virus
That virus, which has a message either in English or Spanish saying that it
is being sent to ask your advice, is running rampant everywhere. I don't
think that the messages you are getting are from killietalk. Any message
that comes to killietalk with an attachment, or with the script embedded,
is bounced to me and I delete them. I have deleted dozens of copies in the
last couple of weeks.
Expand the headers on the messages you are getting and I think you'll find
they are coming from other addresses. The virus mines addresses, a common
technique of the jerks who release these things.
Your advice not to open the attachments is sound though.
