[ADMIN] The latest virus attack
- Hi Calbirders,
There is a recent spate of virus emails going around. I'm getting virus
attacks in about 90% of my emails. Most of these are sent with spoofed
return addresses. Some were sent with my addresses, including one that made
it through Calbirds.
Calbirds never has, and never will, allow attachments to be passed through
the listserver. I will never send an email to Calbirds using the
mobile@... address. I only use that address to receive email on my
cell phone when I'm not home.
That said, it is obvious that someone on this list does not have virus
protection, and is infected. If you are the one, get off the internet, get
virus protection, and clean your system before you get back on. If you have
virus protection but have not updated your virus definitions lately, update
them and run a scan.
