      Dear Keren,

      There are many reasons, some that I can think of:

      1) A specific personal attack against you.
      2) An attack on this specific Pali group and you were chosen maybe randomly.
      3) Both, this group and you were chosen for some reason (mostly
      thinking that most of the users on this list are not heavy into
      computer security and technicalities) in order to spread a virus
      (those files most certainly contain some virus).

      The reason they spread these viruses are also multiple, but mainly to
      take over your (and whoever opens those files) computer in order to
      convert the computer into a "zombie" which in turn is used to attack
      other computers.

      Do NOT trust e-mail, no matter what it says where or whom it comes
      from, e-mail is very easy to fake.

      Do NOT open pictures, word documents, screensavers, or "funny"
      programs or postcards, unless you are 100% sure who sent them to you,
      and even then, sometimes what it happens is that somebody you know
      received this "funny" program and wants to share it with you, which
      yes, it is funny but while displaying the funny thing, in the
      background it is installing the program that will allow remote control
      of your machine.

      Keep up-to-date your antivirus and anti-spyware, try the programs at:

      If possible, do not use MS Windows, or at least do not use MS Outlook
      for E-mail.

      Other than that, and because this seems to come from outside your
      computer, take advantage of this and practice Metta, Karuna and
      Upekkha. :-)
