Fun with e-mail viruses

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 12:36 pm

In my e-mail box this morning:

Hello user of Zone38.net e-mail server,

We warn you about some attacks on your e-mail account. Your computer may
contain viruses, in order to keep your computer and e-mail account safe,
please, follow the instructions.

Advanced details can be found in attached file.

Have a good day,
    The Zone38.net team                 http://www.zone38.net

That’s funny, I don’t remember sending myself any information about issues with my mail server… and what’s this about a Zone38.net “team”? Do I have multiple personalities or something? :-)

“Your e-mail may contain viruses” indeed! I know better than to open that attachment… but then again, anyone who gets this e-mail at his own domain name ought to know better.
