does not sound like anything to worry about. most probably, the virus picked a random address from an outlook user's addr book to use as the 'from' & you just happened to be in that addr book. 10 seconds on google leads to this: http://www.europe.f-secure.com/v-descs/sobig_e.shtml which confirms that. -----Original Message----- From: muinar [mailto:evolt at muinar.com] Sent: 02 July 2003 08:54 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Email address misused to send out viruses :( Hi listees :) Today I received a delivery failure message containing the attachment your_details.zip :( It came from an address that I never sent anything to. It claims that it has been sent out using Outlook, while I am only using Eudora. Ok, it seems that my main email address is being misused to send out ugly viruses. Oh, that reminds me that last week I got a complain from a chinese Symantec user that I had sent him a virus using another important address of mine... I double checked my system - no virus at all. And of course I don't know this guy. Is there anything I can do besides sitting and waiting until the dust settles? Thanks for any insights...
