Anybody Else Getting Hit by SircanWorm Virus??? : LUSENET : Beyond the Sidewalks : One Thread

Thankfully the Norton corporate edition virus "handler" my geek brother installed is catching these e-mails and alerting me, but I am the only one being besieged by numerous spam attacks of this stuff?

Sometimes there are three or four a day, sometimes the same thing, sometimes different stuff, but it seems to be about 7 or 8 of the same thing, just sent out at different times. All have attachments, all seem obviously strange in style.

What do I do other than delete them from Microsoft Outlook? Is there a better way to remove them from the system?

Annie, I had a period a couple of weeks ago when I was really getting them. Obviously someone in your "network" of friends or aquaintances has been infected. Probably more than one. That is what happened to me. If you are in their address book you will keep getting it from them and all their friends etc. etc. Just keep deleting and redeleting.

Thanks Diane for the re-assurance! I had been getting nothing up until 2 weeks ago, then all these, at least they will work it's "course" out and be gone after awhile.

I did not know whether to do anything different than delete, and delete!
