till now only received one from postmaster (an undelivery mail) with an unsuspicious ;)  pif-attachment. As if I was sending pif attachments around!!

Beside that everything stayed clear here, don't know why as it seems to hassle everyone else... maybe GMX is not that bad? ;)

PIF is more than "unsuspicious" - it's pretty dangerous, Koldar! This thing can do things with your windows registry you just don't want to know...

It can't have been you Artemis (I wanna call you Arti too, but that'd just be confusing!). Three reasons:

1. I don't have an address book. I'm not that organised. If I wanna write to someone I get their address from the site. Most of them I memorise. Niether do I have outlook....Always hated that programme.

2. I can't see any attachments, let alone open them. I spoke to my housemate. He said that this particular worm would not get through our collective firewall.

3.There is not, nor has there ever been any sign of a virus on my computer. But I run the fix tool every so often to be sure.

So it really can't have been you mate. The other thing is that all my mails have comes from santh members - Silfer, Uri, Arti, Thuja......

GUYS! I'm sorry but NO VIRUS in the world is smart enough to know I would read a email from these people. Like I said, I never keep emails nor do I have an address book! Somebody has to be targeting these emails.

Arti I seriously think that someone is sending these and changing the address like you showed me how to do. Why? Because the emails that are returned to me are address from the wren@santh.... Hotmail will not allow me to reply using this address. If the worm was automatic, then they would be addresses mbytase ect. Am I making sense?

Arti, I was joking! I'd never exchange pifs and srcs and only known exes so I doubt I believe a postmaster(what happened to Mr. GMX MailerDaemon???) that I sent one... ;)

Btw: Not sure but maybe GMX is blocking more than I expected as I haven't received any of the stated mails, none from Santharians at all, only this postmaster thingie. Killed it at school so can't look at its protocol, though...

As long as you're sure Wren - I felt just a bit guilty when I read this post, and realised that the dates I hot the virus co-incided with the dates that you got the first e-mail.

How scary - a stalker of Santharia!

If you read the link I provided at the other thread explaining how the virus works, Wren, you'll see that there's obviously no person behind it, who's permanently sending viruses to harm Santharia, but that the virus acts automatically. The Santharians get targeted easily this way, cause everyone has everyone else in his addressbook (at least most of us have). If Anea for example is written wrong in someone's addressbook the virus will mail it this way, randomly as you see, cause Djangine mailed something to Talia as well... :lol  You'll see that the virus mails will die down soon, Wren, now that the infected computers are retrieved.

Fair enough

But I don't have an address book....I memorise email addresses. I always thought they were too much of a risk. And I never keep emails, cos I don't have very much storage space. So how did it know to send viruses to others in Santharia?

Cause you're in the address books of others.

Thats the thing tho, it didnt have an attachment, and thanx to Wren and webmaster@santharia.com for sending me a "powerful tool" which wasn't there. More freaky emails.

It wouldn't Aylix! Its an autoe-excecuting thing, it starts the virus programme when you open the mail........

I thought I got rid of any virus I had.....

*runs virus check and the Fix tool*

Yep....my puter is clean as a whistle....How long ago was that.....

I'm still getting them too, btw, manly from Viresse......But I simply ignore any email of 131k or there abouts, no matter who its from!

Once again: This isn't a mail from any of us. If you have Outlook, right-click on the mail, look at the Properties and see who is the real sender of this mail (see discussion above). I suggest to warn this person that he/she has opened a mail with a virus in it and that his/her e-mail account now spreads a virus if no counter-measures are taken.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
