Virus Attack

  1. Boy, I sure felt important this morning. When I opened up my Techspot email box and recieved 32 emails throughout the night, I just figured everybody loved me. Not the case, folks. Just about every email I recieved contained an attached virus! I urge all Techspot aficionados to scan their systems, seems to be a huge influx of this in the last two days.

    It was a huge pain. Both my current dept and previous uni's email system got infected. My email address was even one of those used as a spoof sender! Aargh!

    I heard about this on the way to work this morning. Some poeple got over 300 emails last night. This is a huge problem that everyone needs to update their virus software to keep clean.

    I'm getting 2-3 mails every 5 minutes, not good. I have switched from Mailwasher to Popfile now, so once I get it trained I will have my junk mail deleted on the fly.
