!!! URGENT VIRUS WARNING !!!

Question

Guest rob256

Peeps,

Have just had a particularly unpleasant virus turn up and I know several others of you are infected too. :)

The virus spreads through e-mail - today i had several e-mails from club members and Japspeed too with logical subjects but no text, and i think it was one of these mails that infected mine.

Get checking folks!

Yep also had the one from JAPSPEED. I emailed and pm'ed simon to tell him that he is infected. with the Virus hav'nt had a reply yet. Its now clasified as a level 4 what ever that means. My firewall / antivirus / code blocker has stopped over 20 infections in the last two days. :shock: EVERYONE make sure your antivirus is uptodate and scan ASAP.

Guys/Gals

Its quite likely that one member somewhere has got an infected PC but the problem is trying to diagnose who. You may well get many emails from various celica-club email addresses. I have had a few saying I was the origininator of some of the virused emails.

However, I can tell from the originating IP address of where I supposedly sent them that it wasn't me (completly the wrong country for a start) and hence the infected machine is using email addresses from probably the hosts outlook address book and putting this as the return address.

Case in point.

One of the emails that I supposedly sent and was returned by a firewall had exactly the same ip address as one sent to me from a completly different email address.

As I suspected just run them and I'm clean as a whistle.

Bloody well hope so too as Mr paranoid here is behind a router and each machine I have is Firewalled and Antivirused.

So those emails with my name on em aren't from me :evil:

Ok, Ive downloaded the symantec checker and it shows up ntohing, AVG has been blocking succesfully for the last couple of weeks and is right up to date, definitely not the Japspeed PC or my laptop. Im guessing its spoofing like a good un.

Mmm about 4 days ago I started getting the dodgy email viruses, and yes, free virus checkers are ace! Downloaded Norman (sensible name!) and my computer has been killing the nasty worm left right and centre. (over 20 nath? Blimey, I've had about that too!)

Not had any more from the celica club email so think everyone's clean also.

Received 2 dodgy e-mails today - supposedly from some high-up Celica-Club chappies.

I keep my Norton's up to date, so hopefully doing its job and I should be clean! :)

This is the address I had on one of mine!

jagjeet.hayer@celica-club.co.uk

And it had the Virus, of course I know that it was just unlucky that it used this address. It could have been anyone that it used. Does the server not virus scan?
