I'm getting these emails now, some that seem to come from ECN that include a zip file that is supposedly Password protected.

DO NOT OPEN IT !!

It is not from ECN and is probably a virus that cannot be detected because of th eway it is being sent.

Please be careful with any emails that you get containing attachments!

Here's an example:

(apparently from management@Electrical-Contractor.net)
Quote
Dear user, the management of Electrical-Contractor.net mailing system wants to let you know that,


Your e-mail account will be disabled because of improper using in next three days, if you are still wishing to use it, please, resign your account information.

Pay attention on attached file.

Attached file protected with the password for security reasons. Password is 08226.


Best wishes,
The Electrical-Contractor.net team http://www.electrical-Contractor.net

Note:
There is no management@Electrical-Contractor.net email account and therefore this email could not have possibly been sent from our mail server.

Hmmm... Is the e-mail 34 or 35 kB? I got a number of these, but not with the same message. Things like "Kill the author of this!" and "Already?" [Linked Image] All of them from Poland.

EDIT: What Bill describes is the Bagle virus.

C-H,

Most of the ones I'm getting today are reported as either 13/14kb or 21/22kb

All different titles.
I've been getting these zip files for a while now, but noticed today that some 'seem' to be from an ECN address and now come with a password.

Bill

The place I work has been filtering ALL .zip attachments from all email to avoid the possibility of infection. The early birds who received them got a fast-propagating virus which infected over 7,000 files on their machines in record time.

Do be careful & even if you need to send something or are expecting to receive something which would normally require a zipped attachment, don't bother with it right now as it will only create more difficulty or get stripped by the mail servers.
