    New Virus Warning

    Hi all,

    Just got a spoof email claiming to be from noreply@ntlworld.com.

    Message contained:
    Dear user of Ntlworld.com gateway e-mail server,

    Some of our clients complained about the spam (negative e-mail content)
    outgoing from your e-mail account. Probably, you have been infected by
    a proxy-relay trojan server. In order to keep your computer safe,
    follow the instructions.

    For details see the attached file.

    Kind regards,
    The Ntlworld.com team http://www.ntlworld.com
    It had an attachement that Norton detect right away, so I deleted the email.

    The attachment was changed to a .txt by Norton I think...

    Nick

    Nah, the latest one is a password protected zip file, with the password enclosed in the text of the mail.

    they'll try anything - Seen it posing as "you're machine is infected, he's the disifect tool, which for security we've password protected"
