OT--Anybody else getting this weird email?

Guys (and gals!), I've gotten two emails with a pair of suspicious attachments. The first was from somebody called tailboy70 at hotmail (or something like that!) the second was from sackett at cj7.com. Both had attachments that said toyota.pif and toyota.jpg. The jpg attachment was very small and opened up to a small pic of the back of a car with the toyota name on it. The other wouldn't open for me and was about 100k give or take. The first I screwed around with, but when I got the second, it talked about being a "free klez virus immunity" or something like that. I immediately dumped both. Not overly worried about getting a virus (I don't run a PC/DOS/Windows based machine), but I thought I'd ask if someone else had gotten this since one of the addresses was cj7.com. If somebody is using this forum to drop viruses, I will NOT be amused....

Ive been emailed teh klez about 50 times int eh last several months, andd from looking at most of the email addresses its from folks on this BBS.

PLEASE use anti Virus software folks.
scan daily, dont open attatchments, and enable your antivirus to scan incoming AND outgoing emails.

ME too Ozark. I get it sent to me a couple times a week. I even got one from Joey's address. (although it doesn't mean it came from him)
So people update and scan, scan, scan.

I just checked my mail after reading this and sure enough..........the virus had been sent to me again. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
BTW, there are a ton of trojan's floating around now for some reason. I've started updating my virus protection twice a week. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
