RE: Annoying virus being mailed to me

Hey thanks!

Well I've followed the advice and now throw the messages into the Trash
not wasting any further time on it. But I can't help feeling a rather
passive about the thing.

Glad I'm not the only one... although I did realize it was an already
known worm that had been tamed.

The address I get them at is not one I use for public stuff (I use
coldmail for that). It's my private address for family and friends (it's
certainly not widespread!). None of the people that have the address are
infected. OTOH, I don't manage the MTA (wish I did); so I can't block
"boss.com" at the MTA level.

Cheers!
Chris

Subject: Annoying virus being mailed to me


Hi guys,

For the last two months or so I have been receiving emails 
with the I-Worm/Sobig virus attached about twice a day. My 
anti-virus sw protects me well so I am not infected in any 
way (nor has anybody else here). Initially, I used to ignore 
the messages and delete them; after a couple of weeks I 
decided to trace the source IP from the mail header and send 
complaint messages to the corresponding ISP. But the Bast**d 
keeps finding other IP's to mail me from. Messages come from 
big () boss com  Is anyone else being targeted? Is this a common 
occurrence? Am I the only one?

Cheers!
Chris
