Re: [DMCForum] counterfeit e-mail

As an addendum, these viruses commonly scour your temporary internet files for addresses as well, so you may be in the from: or to: if the infected computer has visited a web page with your email address on it as well.

Very efficient.

  Yes and no - it's a virus that uses an address in your address book or
  inbox and sends itself, supposedly from that address.


  The way to spot this virus is the "from" field is always the address,
  not the name - eg you see "Martin Gutkowski" in the "from" column on
  this e-mail. If you see my e-mail address, it's a virus that has come
  from an infected computer which has an e-mail from me on it. We're on
  mailing lists with lots of members, our addresses are likely to be on
  lots of computers
