    Recently several members at another board I visit have stated that they are getting several virus emails lately. I am pondering the fact that they are coming from a disgruntled member of that board.
    The sender feild is always your email addy with a little modification such as 3D added to the beginning of your email name or just double the name, ex. skelley521 skelley521; 3Dskelley521.
    The virus is always the same though, W32.Netsky.C@mm

    So I was just wondering if anyone here has been experiencing such email activity?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    The address is usually spoofed by W32.Netsky.C@mm so there is no way to tell where it comes from

    Not sure that I understand the spoofing thing??

    W32.Netsky.C@mm is the virii recongized by my anti-virus.
    It has come by several types of attachments, mostly .rar files.

    Yes I've been getting a lot of emails like that. The thing is, however, that my ISP (and Yahoo as well), remove the virus from the email before they deliver it to you.

    Don't know which ISP (or webmail) you are using, but if it doesn't have security features such as virus detection and removal, I recommend you switch over

    It couldn&#39;t be from anyone here because you can&#39;t send attachments with the internal email button. There&#39;s no way they would have your real address unless you gave it to them, or unless they were a mod.
