Several other family members have also received this same type of msg. Amazing what these people will try to do! Another reminder to make sure all antivirus programs are up-to-date!

I'm there!

 

I also sent an email to abuse@videotron.com (traced the ip address to there.)

 

It may not get any action, but I feel better.

It happens. It happens a lot, for me. Unfortunately, there's almost nothing that you can do about it. Oh well. :-/

Perhaps an email to your clients saying that any official email from you would come from MYBUSINESS NAME and not "the xyz.com development team" or anything other than the company name.

 

Many of us have a company name different from the domain name, or if not it is still "different". For example, "Jim Sewell Computing Solutions" is not the same as the "jimscomputing.com devel team".

 

Prevention and end-user education are our best tools against this stuff currently.

its a beagle/bagle variant, and it wasnt sent by you/your domain. just tell them you would never send them attachments is the best way to prevent giving a client a virus.

I've been seeing similar ... it's annoying. Basically, the virus/worm/whatever this one is reads from somebody's addressbook and picks a to: and a from: from it, and sends out an infected e-mail.

 

So it's possible for someone to get an e-mail apparently from you sent to another person if an infected third party has both you and the recipient in their addressbook. Methinks it attacks Outlook addressbooks, but that's just speculation on my part.
