virus question (goldfish)
 
I have gotten 3 emails in the past 2 days from people unknown and the attachment has the word goldfish in it and 2 of the 3 had the subject of goldfish. anyone else getting these? is this some new virus thats spreading around or something? i obviously just delete the emails but was wondering if this is something thats widespread or not. thanks

Sorry, don't have an answer, but I have avirus question too and thought I'd post it here rather than start a new thread (less clutter).

I have received "bounced" emails 3 times in the last week indicating that an email I sent was returned because the recipient was unknown. I never sent the emails to my knowledge, and the recipient is not a name/address known to me. My first thought was maybe my computer was infected, but I would have thought that if my computer was sending out bad emails (culling addresses from my address book) then a friend would have received them and told me, plus the intended recipients of these emails are certainly not in my address book.

Anyone know what's up with this?
