aufalcon.com virus emails

WARNING: It has come to my attention that there has been a number of emails from aufalcon to people with files attached containing viruses. These files are NOT being sent by aufalcon.com members or the server! These are bogus emails coming from infected computers which are using the aufalcon.com email addresses as the sender. Unless the email you receive has a very specific topic and a clear message from myself or another KNOWN premium member they are a virus and should be deleted immediately!

At no time wil the aufalcon@aufalcon.com or casper@aufalcon.com email addresses be used to send any sort of attachment. These email addresses are RARELY used to send email out on. As a rule, if you get something from theses addresses DELETE IT!

Theres little I can do about it as the emails are coming from another PC with the aufalcon.com email addresses on it. I do suggest everyone seriously look at updating virus detectors and running a firewall as this should stop it.

Re: aufalcon.com virus emails

It should really only affect the people with aufalcon.com email addresses and there are only a few of them as I've been too lazy to set them all up yet. Just thought I'd let people know just in case.

Re: aufalcon.com virus emails

i was getting these emails a few months back ona daily basis, lucky norton fixed it quick. It came from a variety of different address, usually sites i ahd been to, but with the same attachment. The attachment from memory was called something like "norton virus check" and the virus was the W32.Netsky.C@mm

Re: aufalcon.com virus emails

LG, yes you can. All premier members are allowed an email account if they want it. I'll set it up for you today and PM you the details.
If any of the other premier members wants an email account just let me know.
