I have received over a dozen email messages in the last 24 hours with attached files that contain viruses. Some were from frequent users of this forum. I think they are being automatically sent from infected computers without the owner's knowledge.

They include this text in the message body:
_________________
Hi! How are you?

I send you this file in order to have your advice

See you later. Thanks

Don't open the attached files with these messages even if they are from people you know. We recommend scanning all attachments with virus detection software as your normal practice. Check your "Out Box" regularly to see if messages have been generated without your knowledge.

Let's be careful out there!
