Re: Returned Mails

Thanks everyone for your quick replies. You've put my mind at ease that the virus isn't originating from my PC but the next one I get (no doubt later this morning) I will check the headers as recommended.

Thanks again,

Guru

Hi,

This is probably a stupid question but I could do with some confirmation of what I think is happening. I've been receiving a lot of 'return' emails claiming they have been returned as I have a virus. Example below:


A virus was found in a message sent by this
account.

--- Scan information follows ---

Result: Virus Detected
Virus Name: W32.Netsky.C () mm
File Attachment: posting.txt.com
Attachment Status: deleted

I have up to now guessed these were down to 'someone' else's pc infected with netsky or mydoom but after a lull I have been bombarded with loads of such mails over the course of the day.

I would just like some reassurance that this is indeed due to other people infected boxes rather mine. I have of course run several full system scans with Norton av with the latest definitions etc and do use a firewall, Spybot etc.

I've googled and this starts to confirm my suspicions but isn't authorative.

Thanks in advance,

Guru
