I got an email moments ago from abuse@gov.us titled "Illegal Website". I think this was a virus - the body shows what seems to have been captured by my virus protection. It said:


****************** Virus Warning Message (on tmvscan)

Found virus WORM_NETSKY.P in file details.txt .pif (in judge.zip)
The file virus/virZYC0R826D is moved to the configured virus directory.

*********************************************************

It had two attachments, text files. One said:

You have visited illegal websites.
I have a big list of the websites you surfed.


and the other:


****************** Virus Warning Message (on tmvscan)

judge.zip is removed from here because it contains a virus.

*********************************************************

This website and CNN.com are the only places I go here at work. I don't know if coming here is related or if it just a random draw, but I thought I'd let everyone know. I hope my home PC is OK.

Odd.

It is very easy to spoof email addresses. With just a few lines of code, I could send you an email that sais it was send from *for example* gwb@whitehouse.gov

Just never open emails with odd subjects, dont waste you time on them

This topic made me remember the old warning Windows 95 use to issue. "This program has performed and illegal action". And I'd think to myself, "get used to it Dorothy, your not in Kansas anymore"!
