    I just got an email with a 196k attachment that I didn't open... but the email read:
    Hi! How are you?
    I send you this file in order to have your advice
    See you later. Thanks

    And the attachment was entitled: WayCoolPak.doc.pif

    I'm thinking this is another virus. Anywords from you experts?? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    Yep, delete this ASAP. And don't forget to clean it out of your "deleted items" folder as well afterward. Any file that has a double extension is at minimum usually useless, but often harmful.

    Take a look at this thread. It's got some info on "Sircam", which is exactly the "worm" you've described.

    We got this nasty bugger at one of our hotels and we kept cleaning it and it kept coming back. We have two pcs in a peer-to-peer network and seems it had written to the autoexec on computer 2, and I guess everytime they rebooted computer 2, it kept kicking the virus onto computer 1. Haven't heard of any recurrence now in a week, so hopefully I got it all last time!

    That's what I suspected...sircam [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]

    It's even from the same sender that sent the last one...and i don't have a clue who she is!! Needless to say, I not only deleted the message, and emptied the trash, I also blocked the lovely lady from sending more emails. I realize that she probably doesn't even know that her system is sending them out, but as long as it continues to do so...I'm not interested in hearing from her! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    I have you guys to thank though [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] If You wouldn't have posted that original thread, I'd have never even known. Mwah!! I owe you big time.... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
