email spoofed? Quote | Reply

i just found this in my email inbox. I rarely use the email here (mostly for skydiving related sign ups etc..) and certainly didnt send anything on the 8th when i was laid up in the hospital after my accident.. Unsure

is this something you can/need to look into?

Nope - No need to look into this. The Netsky viruses does not infect Linux/Unix machines, which runs on. We are not vulnerable to the slew of MS targeting viruses out there - but still monitor our systems 24/7 for threats. It uses the technique described below.. and that's why you appear to have sent en email with a virus while you have not.
