Worm Virus

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Thu Jul 12, 2012 12:58 pm

I have gotten emails from 3 different forum members, showing copies also went to other from members, with a link to a work at home site. Assuming none of them were sent to me intentionally the computers most likely have a worm virus that is sending the emails without the owners knowing it. Make sure your virus software is up to date, and run a FULL scan on your PC, not just the standard quick scan. I have PMed the people I received the messages from, but this is good advice for all of us. so far all of them have come from people with Yahoo email addresses.

Just received a message from one of the senders that his Yahoo account had been hacked, but it was now corrected, so I am assuming that is where these are coming from.

My wife had her yahoo account hacked but I don't think mine was. Nobody has said anything anyhow.
