I got an email from this guy(turbocruiser88) earlier this week, it was blank with 2 attachments. I finally opened it - and my anti virus went off, the first attach was NATO homepage, the second triggered the antivirus. I also got one that says "eager to see you" (same thing blank with 2 attachments)
If turbocruiser88 is a member here check your computer for viruses!!!

Yeah, thats Les. One thing though, he hasn't been on e-mail account in a few months due to not having a phone hooked up, hmmm... Someone has screwed with his account, I'll let him know in the morning

Look in the email headers. i'm sure you'll find that guy did not send the email, rather the virus spoofed the email to make it look as if it came from that guy.

I been getting a ton of those as has Dan. I get them from what appears to be Dan's email, natotreasurer, even got them from what appears to be Gary S(1), even got one from JT
I get them from non-NATO associated address also.

Pete none of my computers have a virus and that email you got didn't come from me.

Do you still have that email that shows being sent from my email account? i have quite a few email accounts, can you tell me which one? i'd really like to see where the email really came from. If you could, please forward me the entire email.

In the years i've been online, i've never really gotten infected with any virus that i can recall. As long as you know what you're downloading and use a good anti-virus program, you shouldn't have a problem with any virus.

Since i was a webmaster on another site, apparently my email address is in many address books of T-Bird people and is why not only do i get several virus emails a day, but others get them from what appears to be me.

Check the headers in the email to find out the real sender. Those types of emails rarely come from the person who is in the "from" field of the email. It's easy for a virus to spoof that field and make it appear that the email is from someone other than who really has the problem.

JT, I know that e-mail didn't really come from you. I sent you 2 private PMs. Like I said, I get from several per week, some look like they are from NATO people, Dan mostly but also the [email protected] addy and occassionally other members. I also get several from non-nato related address'. I know they are not from whom they appear to be. Sorry, I don't have the one from your address, I usually delete them as soon as I realize what they are. I did send which of your address it came from in the 2nd PM.

Yep...

I get 3-4 per day from various addresses. In fact, I have more addresses in my "block senders" list that I do in my address book !

I know my PC is 100% clean and I update my anti-virus 5-7 times per week !

Don't open any e-mail that says "How have you been" or My new Game" or "You've Won" or other BS stuff like that...

It is the Klez Worm virus that is going around for 6-8 months now...it's a sneaky SOB !
