Yay, More Email Spam!

Anyone else getting flooded with 418-420k messages with forged from addresses and headers, titles like “test” and “hello”, no text and just a “readme.zip” attachment consisting of a readme.htm (many spaces) .scr file? Is this the new virus that’s going around or something?

Tell me again why we don’t draw and quarter spammers again?

    Server Report Status Error
    None here yet, but it’s just a matter of time.

  2. It’s the new virus W32/Mydoom@MM that’s flooding mailboxes since yesterday and apparently is going to DDoS SCO.

  6. To make Gates dream in perspertive, there is an interesting article at InfoWorld about a new security hole in IE.
    “New Explorer hole could be devastating”
    I don’t see how these holes would be unfixable, but hey I am just a programmer.
