Add jwwiii at pacbell_net to that list.
It may well be more than one computer, BTW, so all names may *not* be in
your particular address book.
This is almost surely someone who uses Outlook or Outlook Express. Quick
removal is essential, as it starts to eat your files and operating system
shortly after it exhausts your address book.
I'm told delayed removal makes it much harder. Damaged files and system
resources can't be recovered, usually. I've been getting two or three klez
virus messages a day, but have not recorded "senders" since I knew they
were fake. Sorry. I think they may be from members of both killietalk and
Aquatic Plants Digest.
Others who wish to continue the (high) risk of using Outlook may want to
check the microsoft web site as they have some download patches to
partially fix most versions.
If your editor breaks it, put that URL all on one line.
Get Norton AV o/e.
