Damn clever these viruses, they send e-mails without your machine being
switched on! ;-)
Yes it did look like Netsky, mails with that one seem to total about 25k.
What has to be borne in mind is that the "From" address on the virus mail is
as bogus as the Subject, it is picked at random from the affected machine's
address book. As most of us don't tend to have our own address in our
address books it seems that whoever appears to have sent the mail is
probably the least likely one to have actually done it!
Who'd be daft enough to run a ".pif" attachment anyway? Surely no-one on
this list???

to do a scan on his machine

Hi All,
The posting with the subject "Re: Your software", purporting to come from
'XYM looks a bit dodgy to me.
There is no text in the E-mail and it contains a .pif attachment, which I
think is some kind of executable.
Forgive me if I'm wrong, but you can't be too careful these days.
