THAT DAMNED KLEZ VIRUS!!
It's been confounding me a lot the past several weeks. I've received a total of around 50 of these Klez viruses in the last 3 or so months. I update my Norton virus updates every week so any new virus won't be able to get in my computer at all and they're automatically deleted or quarantined.
But it seems I may be sending it off myself without ME knowing. Already, 4 people have written to me asking why I have written to them and didn't say anything in my email. All of these people got the message from my "firstname.lastname@example.org" address, an address I haven't been using for 3 months now.
So I'm not sure if it's coming from me at all. Or maybe it's the nature of this virus. But how can that be when I've not clicked on any attachment aside from those that I've checked as safe and my virus checker has checked safe?
If you get an email from me from "email@example.com" and it has an attachment, don't open it!
