Just thought I would let you know that I just recieved an email supposedly from firstname.lastname@example.org with an attachment.
The attachment was called our_secret.zip I deleted the file rather then scan, so can't tell you which virus it was.
Here is the property information which may or may not help you.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, beer in one hand - kebab in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HO
As you can see in the header information this mail never was sent from SWC servers.
This is instead a classic case of spoofing.
Someone with the mail email@example.com and your mail in their adress book has been infected and the virus spreads itself by fake mails.
If you look at the tags you see it was in fact sent from an australian user.
The best way to protect yourself is get a good anitvirus and always check headers for sender server before opening attackements.
I recently received several e-mails claiming to be from reliable sources with attachments, to the e-mail address I have set for my darkness account also. So it seems that some one might possibly have access to the e-mail account listings.
Hey guys, i got one to, supposedly from 'firstname.lastname@example.org' with an attachment named ''our_secret.zip'' i also got one from another address but i deleted it, i remember reading, ''ok, heres the user account info''?? with an attachment saying account.zip i scanned it, and it was something like ''wormblaster6785''???? so i deleted that too, they both also said ''virus free'' in the text.
