I got an email the other day...suposedly from Gibbage and some one named angelfire something or other...anyway I opened it...wrong move. Turned out to be a virus that once activated started sending out emails like crazy. I scanned my system said no virus found but today when my Zone Alarm asked me if i wanted to allow... winppr32.exe to access the net I said yes and bam...same thing. I had to do a hard shutdown because I couldnt stop it no matter what I did. My concern is that some one used Gibbage's name and the name of another forum member which indicates that the person responsible for this might be from here. CYA guys...
