I have had in excess of 300 emails from this bugbear virus.
it appears a devious little bugger, it send emails of the infected person
out using its own SMTP but the clever bit is it sets the "reply to / from"
field to another email address in the address book.
it would use things like email@example.com
the 300 or so i have had have been server and site warnings that the email I
sent them had the virus in it.
It turned out to be an old customers machine with my email address on it.
The virus had used my domain.com with variants of firstname.lastname@example.org , one
being his name, the other msnukupd (from another email address he had).
its annoying as all people who receive the virus from this person will see
my domain in the "from" field and could be after my blood even though I am
not the source.
a devious virus as the infected user will not receive these emails and not
realise he/she is infected for some time.
I was sent the virus myself on the 30th of September and Norton didnt blink
at it (virus defs 2 days old). However it didnt get opened or "exploit"
opened as OE was up to date.
Disection of the attachment then showed it had keyboard hooks and network
awareness. then shortly after Norton released the new virus definitions and
P.S. do something with your email as its open to News rape :)
