    Been getting stacks of these just recently, mostly sent to my domain which then defaults to me

    So I changed the forwarding e-mail to a msn one so that I would.'t have to keep looking at the blighters and just incase one of the kids opens one by mistake.

    Also deleted one of my older e-mail addys as that was getting nothing but trash as well.
    Just seems to me to be getting out of hand recently, esp having to warn our own members when we had a similar e-mail to the one hexus had.

    Ohh the joy of e-mail I suppose

    recieved 1 the other day and now got 2 today ,which really pee's me off cause cause im now getting more viruses than spam!!!!

    thankfully norton kills it dead before it can do owt

    1 of the ones i got today supposedly came from psycho@pc-extreme.co.uk (genuine email addy although i doubt it really did come from him mind)

    so where the hell are they coming from tho? or is it from morons that dont have any antivirus protection and its using their adddress book?

    its spreading all over the place atm :/ my uni network was down over the weekend because of it

    But one thing tho - its not a virus, its a worm; or rather a group of worms which are packaged together for delivery and then separate out on the victims machine/network
