In case others are getting this forged email as well, there was a call this morning to verify an email with the subject "Virus Alert From eskimo.com Virus Report Center"; this was forged and included an HTML link to an external site. Do not click that link; we have no idea what it is, and with the given subject may be a virus-installing script itself. Details of the one we caught (and reported to abuse admins where it originated): ----- Received: from jyavoe (55-BAR2-X10.red.retevision.es [188.8.131.52] (may be forged)) by mx1.eskimo.com (8.9.3/8.8.8) with SMTP id IAA24417 for <[...]@eskimo.com>; Fri, 16 Jan 2004 08:10:21 -0800 From: Marcy <Syblenlvwwuqsqh@apexdisplays.com> Reply-To: <Syblenlvwwuqsqh@apexdisplays.com> To: <[...]@eskimo.com> Subject: Virus Alert From eskimo.com Virus Report Center Date: Fri, 16 Jan 2004 10:09:01 -0600 Message-Id: <email@example.com> Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="gkcgnhvxfu_1074269400" [HTML encoded below to cause clikcable links, etc.] To:[...] From: eskimo.com's Internet Virus Department We have detected a possible computer virus on your computer, You must open the details of the report within 24 hours our we will be forced to shut down your internet service.
