Think you're right. On my other non-firewall protected machine it tried to
keep downloading even after I disconnected. Only stopped once I'd gone
through task manager. File deleted untouched.
I got an acknowledgement sent to this address a couple of days ago from
someone I'd never heard of stating that an attachment was trapped out by
their (firewall) - needless to say I'd never sent it. As this system has
incredibly high levels of protection in it, could obviously not have been
anything actually sent from here.

Subject: LF: Re: Your software from G3XYM - virus ?
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.
