    Shaun's right. I've been getting these viruses like that for about the last two years. Started out on a couple e-mail lists that I'm on, then I've received a couple like it from someone's e-mail on another website and got one from admin@coloradoK5.com a few months ago. That is one thing I like about AOL, the files stay closed until I decide to open and I never open them.

    Well Rob, since you've been on a roll lately, want ya to do something for me. since I've been averaging somewhere around 150 posts a weekend, I need someone to keep my spirit alive while I'm out actually wheeling this weekend. I'll be leaving tomorrow morning and won't be back 'til Sunday.............

    So if you would take my place and post a truckload of useless, redneck ramblings and drivel that no one else cares about, would you please carry my torch this weekend?

    Re: CK-5 members getting mass mailed a virus, ****NOW MORE****

    my office got hit with the "klev" again yesterday...but the way it works isn't as easy to figure out who sent it to you..

    person A's computer is infected-

    it pickes names out of the address book- it sends person B emails stating its from person C when really it's not....

    luckily for me, my norton picks them up before i open them BUT the email address it said it came from- no way could it have, as that user is no longer with the company...just the name is still active.....

    Rob, these virus infected emails are not from the people they say they are from. This is happening to everyone. Everyone who uses email is getting them. I've gotten them and the sender is listed as ME! I know I didn't send it...

    Re: CK-5 members getting mass mailed a virus, ****NOW MORE****

    Rob, never trust the "From" address of an email. Don't trust header info, either.

    Brandy said it pretty good. The newer virus trend is to mass mail itself to a persons address book, and pick random names from the address book to fill in the "from" field. So when Joe Smith sends you a message with a virus attached, it shows up looking like it's from John Doe. You and John Doe are both in Joe Smiths address book. John Doe may not even have that email address anymore, but because it's in Joe Smiths address book, the virus makes it look like it's from him.

    Make sure you stay up to date on your virus scanner software, and then forget it. If you stick to some safe habits, like not opening every attachment you get and being extremely wary of the ones you do open, you'll be fine. Just treat them as spam and ignore them.


    Just to give you an idea, at work (back in the glory days when we had control of our email server instead of corporate), we blocked the following attachment file extensions, and only one or two large virus infections in the last 3 years (brought in by an AOL user):
    *.exe
    *.scr
    *.pif
    *.bat
    *.vbs
    *.vbe
    *.js
    *.jsp
    *.shs


    I know guys that run thier shops without blocking anything, and are constantly cleaning up viruses. Also, set your virus scanner to scan at least 3 levels deep on zip files. By the time you get to the second level, you should be clued in that this isn't a happy file...

    It's rare that someone will send you a virus intentionally. Most of the time they're spread, they're done so without the true senders knowledge, who may not even know he has a virus until a week later.
