   Borrowed email address for virus

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Good morning, everyone,

I've received a number of kind suggestions for how to clean up my machine 
after it allegedly was the source of a virus early this morning.

Thankfully, I don't run MS-Outlook and my machine was powered off during 
the onslaught (I got a hundred automatic filter message responses when I 
retrieved my mail this morning) and it seems the virus borrowed my email 
address from the infected machine, perhaps to disguise the source of the 
infection.  I suspect someone on the list who has both my email address and 
the XML-Dev email address in their address book should be looking to clean 
up their machine.

All I can see from my copy of the header is that the origin was the machine 
named "unknown".

I appreciate the time some people took to try and help me.

.................. Ken

(BTW, all mail I send has my trailer at the bottom ... if you don't see the 
trailer then it wasn't from me)
