Re: Virus warning - gelca - using seaint addresses

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] I received a virus from this 'Gelca' last December. However, I have not received (thankfully) the new infected e-mail this week.

Me too, Peter.  I suspect that everyone was greeted with a virus this morning.  Panda caught mine before I even opened the mail, but my PC was otherwise unaffected.  Hopefully, everyone is as well-protected as we are.

Subject: Virus warning - gelca - using seaint addresses

I received an e-mail from "gelca" that was sent Saturday morning. The
subject line was a previous seaint subject that that I had posted to, but
the e-mail didn't come from seaint, so it landed up in my regular inbox, not
my seaint inbox.

Norton Anti-Virus caught it - there was a file with the name setup.doc.scr
in the e-mail. I didn't record the name of the virus, but it was serious
enough for Anti-Virus to freeze my machine.
