There is a rather nasty virus doing the rounds called WORM_MIMAIL.R

The problem is that it pretends to be from other people in the infected persons address book!

I've got good antivirus software (norton) and it has warned me of this virus in other peoples mails. The intersting thing is that i've had a few emails back from people telling me that i have sent them an infected email, when i know that i havent. Nasty eh??

Just thought i'd let you know!

I received an email with that virus attached, and my virus program caught it (PC-Cillin 2002)

The email was not from anyone i knew so whether it had picked up my ad from some other spam company???

I got sent it too...

6 E-mails on my normal account and 1 on my website address.

Luckily my software (Norton Systemworks 2003) caught it no problem.

Not from anyone I knew though!!!
