New E-mail Virus?


Recommended Posts

Today I was checking through some spam, when I came upon one that had:

IF you get this message, DO NOT OPEN THE msg[1].zip file!!!!

 

 

Norton AntiVirus:

 

Virus Alert:

Object Name: C:\Documents and Settings\NetDownloads\msg[1].zip

Virus Name: W32.Netsky.P.dam

Action Taken: Unable to repair this file.

 

But it did not hurt nothing yet, I am going to see what it does, report the E-Mail and IP Address, then reformat. :)

Well, you should never open attachments from an email address you don't know. And even if you get an attachment from someone you do know you should still run it through a virus scan before opening it.

Hehe, Usually I do, but for some reason it got out of my mind. :)

 

And my local ISP owner, also does research on viruses, so I will package it on a disk and give it to him whenever I get a chance to go to his office. :P

Yes Thomas,

 

But I do not always pay attention to the popups. :)

 

When I get a few in a row for me running new programs such as games, or to download files, I just click enter through them, I am laying on my bed lol.

Yes, I am running BSD, my wife is still running Windows. I do not really open them, I dont give them the time of day really. Just delete, delete, delete all day long. Thomas, there is no wrong operating system or wrong computer or wrong anything if it is doing it's function. As long as it does what you need it to then it is the right one to have.
