Dear Richard & List, I have not only been viruses, but also getting spammed by radical anti-war groups (there anti-war, and then there is insane-anti-war). To add to that, a group has passed on my personal e-mail (sold presumably) to investor groups who have sent me "tips" on how to gain money from the war. Its disgusting that anyone would spend any amount of time plotting the market when innocent people are dying. I have not bothered to unsubscribe, as you may well know doing so may cause more spam. I have however, gone to http://www.internic.net/ and clicked on "registry whois database" and reported them to their host. The more complaints a host receives regarding abuse and spam, the more likely their little operation will be shut down. As for the viruses, the headers and the sender can be faked. The best thing to do is not reply or shout at the sender. The viruses I have been getting - others get from me, yet I never sent any. Its a very clever virus. Anai ---- Dear all someone has been hacking around various anti war email lists and actoivists accounts and sending junk emails in the hundreds to lists, someone did this with my account the other day, i think because they got into my account and did it direct However, I did find a virus on my computer, see details below.
