Because I get so much email from viewers… and respond to just about all of it, I’m sure I’m in lots of address books. And, for most purposes that’s a good thing.. for viruses it’s a bad thing.
Every virus that comes, seems to stake out my email address.
I had written earlier about hundreds of emails, bounce backs from a virus being cutoff at the server, coming to me… because my email address had been ‘spoofed’ as the return address. The people who ran the server knew they weren’t from me, but kept sending the bounce notices. At one point I was getting one every few minutes.
Now it’s virus_swen. Overnight, I got a few dozen of them.
I’m at wits end. This is the Internet equivalent of subway graffiti. It symbolizes a breakdown of our online society.
