I know this guy who has over 7 years of direct security influence with
Yahoo and Google security engineers!


You know that you really should have replied from av3 () yahoo com and
attached a .shm or a .scr, right?  I would definatly open any
attachment sent from av3 () yahoo com in a heartbeat.

Really though, that's some crappy static code.  It reminds me of a 1st
year programmer that replicates their same call 100 times to get 1
thing done.

I'm not quite sure how people still fall for these things... be it a
executable attachment or html, that low and behold CAN have javascript
(AJAX/Web 2.0TM) in it, you should not be just opening any
attachments.
