  • is this a virus?



    i got an email today out of the blue from someone whom I know and am prolly in their address book:


    Subject: read it immediately


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    is that your account?

    talk.com (22K)




    So basically the email subject is "read it immediately" and the email body just says "is that your account" and then the mail has a 22K attachment called "talk.com"

    I was just going to click on it when I told myself WAITTTTTTT STOPPPPPP this is prolly a VIRUS!!!!!

    I don't actually want to email this person and ask if they mailed me But should I open the attachment or is this a virus?

    .com is a dos executable, greater chances r its a virus.

    forward it to ur yahoo or hotmail account they will check it with anti virus, in case u dont have one.

    even tho if no virus found, if the sender is a comp genious & i wouldnt open it

    peice a advice, never just click executables & files whcih contains macros, such as exe, com, pif, vbs, doc, etc...most read only files r harmless tho, txt, jpg, etc.

    While rest of the world was busy mating I was Moderating Cafe and lost my jawani.

      This is definately a virus. I received this kind of email too & was picked up by my anti-virus immediately.

        Its surely a virus, and JB, these days JPEG files are infected with Virus.

        I mean new virus would keep the icon of jpeg , but it would be either .vbs or .exe. You will never know, if you have hidden file extensions of known files.

            Perhaps it is this virus

            http://[email protected]

            W32.Netsky.B is a mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to send itself to the email addresses it finds when scanning the hard drives and mapped drives. This worm also searches drives C through Z for folder names containing "Share" or "Sharing," and then copies itself to those folders
