I posted earlier today that we were receiving 1 per minute all morning.

It seems to have slowed down a little now. That may mean that Europe has gone to bed and shut off their computers.

It will probaly start up again in ernest tomorrow morning. I can't understand people who do not have AV software or, if they do, they don't update it.

We still get klez worm viruses on a daily basis. How is that possible after all this time?

tropicalisland .. why not follow them up and get the infected users cleaned or taken offline?

See post in the other thread referenced above?

I can only cope with so much of this before I start to take some action against infected users it .. its a waste of our time also otherwise.

you could email your email provider, i did this and they've stopped sending the attachment, now i get the msg enclosed in the email plus warning me that this was an attempt to send me a virus!

How do you do? I almost never get viruses! Maybe once or twice a year my antivirus software gives me a warning and my PC works perfectly.
Of course, unknown e-mails with attachments are automatically deleted or even answered with a junk 4megabytes file attached. This disincourage spammers and virus senders ;)

Greetings,

@ Herenvardo

You do realise that the FROM: address is probably spoofed and isn't the REAL senders address? Sending them a 4meg file back is doing nothing other than cloging up an inocent persons mailbox. Don't waste your time.
