last night i got this email, which my email filtering software did not identify as a virus because it had no attachment. it was called ‘a nice game’ which just screams virus, and it was a good, big email, 127k… is it possible the mail washer didn’t detect the attachment, but it was there? doubtful.
i have no way of knowing for sure if it was a virus since the source was something compiled, but this is something i’ve theorized for some time — email virii that are self-contained and not in attachments.
and Mike, aka cooties, has a good suggestion to stop the spambots in their tracks.
the internet: a strange and wonderful place.
