Uh oh, Virus message found ?!?!
« on: August 15, 2004, 01:01:42 PM »
Here is a copy and paste of an email I got from ECS tuning .... Where I ordered my brake pads from.  Any suggestions on what I should do ?  I have Symantec Anti-Virus (THANK YOU Amanda!) and it gets updated almost daily (I always check).  Here is the email I got.


A virus was found in an Email message you sent.
This Email scanner intercepted it and stopped the entire message
reaching its destination.

The virus was reported to be:


Please update your virus scanner or contact your IT support
personnel as soon as possible as you may have a virus on your system.

Your message was sent with the following envelope:


... and with the following headers:

I would bet it is actually not you.  If I remember correctly, the
infects mail servers and then spoofs addresses that pass through there.

If your anti-virus is updated, run a full system scan, then make sure it is set to scan incomming and outgoing mail.  If you have done all that you are probably OK.
