Atri, it would appear that your computer or the computer that runs webmaster@santharia.com is infected with this worm. I would have e-mailed you but I do not want to solicite any more attempts at infection, as I am already getting 10 plus simularly infected e-mails a day. :|

May I suggest you look at your virus protection, make sure its up to date and run a scan. This should go for everyone as well. I don't want to lay it all on people here but it seems a large part of the internet community has not realised the nessesity of an up to date, working antivirus program.

If you are one of these, please go to
www.avast.com, download and register it. It is free for home users when you register the program, only catch is you have to re register every year or so, but still for free. It works great and it is updated on average every few days, the log does not show a period longer than 6 days without an update!

PLEASE, any of you out there that are...

Too cheap...
Too lazy...
Too Ignorant...

To run an AV program on every computer you have on the internet, and have my e-mail address in your address book, remove me NOW! I don't want 10 infected e-mails a day!

Sorry Arti, most of the above is not directed at you, but I am rather fustrated at the state of such things as they are. :|

I repeat again what I've already posted at the Dev Forum, as you don't seem to be aware of how the virus works precisely, Mortus:

You didn't receive a virus from me, but from someone who has me in his/her address book and is infected with the virus. The virus changes the sender mail address to a random address from the address book. See my post here from August 20th.

I'm pretty well protected against viruses. It would be irresponsible for a webmaster not to be;)  

So to all of you: take care! Get an antivirus program, or make at least this online virus checking test I've mentioned at this other thread or use Mortus' Antivirus Software!

Ah, sorry, my bad... I knew of a virus that acts liek this one but there are so many now days it is vertually imposible to keep them all streight. :\  

Still rather iritateing that there is still the level of ignorance out there that lets these things spread this far. No offence intended to anyone, just a general observation and one I have had unfortunately for a vary long time. :(

For those who wants more details on this virus, check out this page at Avast.com, or look for a virus referance sections on your Antivirus venders web site.
