Yeah i been getting this, the annoying thing is that it it comes with a 200k attatchment which seriously slows up hotmail. I had 28 emails over night of this virus, its really pissing me off, i've been sensible enough to delte them all and not open them.

Just a reminder to everyone - NEVER OPEN .EXE ATTACHMENTS - from anyone! I never open .exe files that are emailed to me, even if I know the person who is sending it.

Ohhhhh shit, what if you did open the damn things?!

Yes I got it just this morning from a J. Sanders. I blocked the email address after I read the

but I'll keep lookout for more of them since it affects not only .exe files but others too

Its on IRC too, you get memos saying to go somewhere and d/l this and that. Why don't you people use filters? My filter throws everything away that has a .exe file attachment in it.

If it happens anymore to you just check the box and click block sender and it will take you to a page that says block all incoming mail from this address, check that box and you will be safe

Ok Hotmail is by far the worst e-mail service EVER, unsecure servers, they are hacked every single day, they do a terrible job of setting up their servers, as I checked out their test servers when they put them up online. I would change to some other service.

Can you guess what this is? bet you cant!

It's a microchip segasonic.

Anyway, there's yet another one going around
that says "check out my new website (so-and-so)"
and it has a link (or broken link) to some website and if you try to mail them back it says they aren't even a member! I don't even have online buddies and I get them! I learned never to click on a link sent by a stranger (especially one who says they know you but are dead wrong) because the website probably has a virus.

Also, watch out for the HEY YOU! virus.
It sends you an e-mail that says
"Open the attached to see pictures of me"
Then it fucks up your AOL and sends it's self to all your buddies.
