I must have gotten 50 emails today alone inviting me to open the attached file "for details" on a wide variety of subjects. All the attached files have a .pif extension, so I'm not opening them!

Maybe all your buddies want to let you share in their fun? :D

Funny. Not!

I don't know anyone who sends out spam or viruses, hacks computers or dates alleged women who call themselves Snatchblock tongue.gif

Personally, I think you're the blond bimboy on Queer Eye For The Straight Guy tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif

This is the same e-mail wormed that we talked about on this thread:

E-mail worm (http://media5.hypernet.com/cgi-bin/UBB/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=5&t=010759&p=)

Luckyly nobody here got it, but one of the guys here address is in somebody's contact list that did get it. He is getting about 150 or so returned e-mails a day. My ISP said that this is the worse worm that has ever hit. There was as many as 40 million e-mails sent out in a 20 minute period.
