E-mail Virus!

I got an e-mail from an unknown source today and it has a virus in it. The wierd thing is the reply-to address [email protected]. I don't believe that they would be sending me a virus. I have gotten an e-mail from thinkjeep.com about specials, so this e-mail virus could of taken their e-mail address. Anyway, the subject was empty and there's no body to it, just a file. PJJDCLPJ.EXE. I thought I'd just let you know since it could be taking e-mail addresses from other stuff in your inbox.

Re: E-mail Virus!

Speaking of getting emails from thinkjeep.com...
about every couple of weeks I get an e-mail from them that is supposed to list specials, but it's just a super long email of jumbled letters.
Anyone else have this problem?

Re: E-mail Virus!

Rosser probably has a virus in their computer. Someone should let them know.

Re: E-mail Virus!

What's the subject line on the e-mail, I don't recognize that exe file as a virus, worm or whatever.

Re: E-mail Virus!

I received those same 3 emails. You would think that rosser would have their virus definitions up to date.

Re: E-mail Virus!

You'd be suprised at how fast and how many viruses come out daily. I had one on my home and work computer and had to reformat both computers. It came as a worm from my folks everytime they'd email a legit message it sent a infected file on its own. My work computer is part of the State system and my virus scan never picked it up cause it was out of date...

Re: E-mail Virus!

I got the same three. I am on the phone with them now. I am sure someone has already told them, but I think they should be alerted again. I checked my email and got on here to post immediately, but you guys already beat me to it. Great job! Thanks!!
