    He all, if recieve an email with the text something like this

    "Hi! How are you?

    I send you this file in order to have your advice

    See you later. Thanks"

    delete it, it's a worm virus (W32.Sircam.Worm@mm)

    The return email addy is vh49er1@prodigy.net and the sender of this one was Romeo Delight, so watch out!

    i got that email yesterday. the only thing that saved my ass was that hotmail has mcaffee virus scanner on everything, so i couldn't open the thing. i think i'll be okay. i fell for it though.
    at least this virus doesn't harm your computer, it just is a pain in the ass.

    It spreads through the address book.

    And laner, after some date in October it decides whether to reformat your hard drive or fill up your free space with text...it's pretty harmful [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    Ive recieved about 10 of those in a week - I never opened any, as they seemed pretty obviously dodgy. My virus scanners only just started pinging them though

    awwwwww FUCK!

    dude, this is half way funny, but kinda not too. I thought it was our own Romeo Delight trying to send me some funky porn or somthin. so I would download it, it wouldnt open, I'd write him back and say "hey, your files fucked up bro" and I'd get another one in a different format...this has happened three times tonight. The last one, I wrote back "hey, my advise is to quit sending me files that are fucked up!" lol

    Ok, so how do I nuke it?

    Hey guys I'm extremely sorry about this! I didn't send any of those mails, they sent themselves. I didn't know I even had a fuckin' virus! All of a sudden I get all these emails asking me what the hell? And I don't know how I got it. Shit, I'm really sorry.
    I am awesome

    It's cool, UW. I think everyone knows you wouldn't pull a stunt like this. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't know how your Email address got linked to it...

    But I blame AOL!

    I've gotten a couple of those so far. It's been sweeping through the Dungeons & Dragons community on the net and, well, since I have a D&D website I'm in people's addy books.

    As long as you don't run the attachment you're fine. The exact nature of the virus is that somehow it searches your My Documents folder and names the file after one of those files to try and make it look a bit more believeable.

    It's some nasty stuff, that's for sure.
