View Full Version : Anyone else getting attacked?

I'm getting email attacks left and right. They are getting smart, all these attacks have some sort of attachment that looks like it might be a virus. It's a .dat file.

My yahoo account has like 10 of these things in the main folder. They are marked as postmaster error, could not send email to following address. I don't use Yahoo or Netzero to send so I know that they are virsus just for that reason.....That and the ATTxxx.dat file is a giveaway.

The other 40 that I have find their way into the bulk/spam folder. They say that my email is going to be down, and to use this attachment to fix the, so said, problem.

Oh I better click that attachment, I don't want my email going down....yeah right.

Got quite a lot in my campus account despite all the mail filters.

Even got one that was from my friend.

Smart buggers.

Hotmail's filter has been getting smarter, fortunately. Either that or I'm just not getting as much mail as I used to overall. Ah, I'm fading into the darkness...
