Default OT: Klez.H.Worm Virus

Warning to all OSO members and Board God.

Since last Wednesday I have been receiving lots of mail from people I don't know infected with the Klez.H.Worm virus.
One message I received to day I think came from a board member. Address name was eyezlee. Sound familiar to anyone?

Check your mail carefully. We don't want this to spred further.

Thanks.
Iggy

Just did a search and eyezlee is a board member.
Wish I had the addresses of the other e-mails that were infected.

I'm not blaming anyone here, just trying to spred the word and ask for everyone to be careful.

This is some real bad ****.

Run your Norton updates, it will cover this.

Trust me, you DO NOT want it.

Be careful.

I've also been getting alot of the Klez Virus from people that i don't know, but thier email addresses all have references to boats in them somehow.

There may be someone on the board that has a lot of us in there address book who is infected, and it re-sends it out to all of the address book using return addresses of others in the address book.

It's coming in to my work address and the companies firewall is catching it. But I'm starting to catch hell from our MIS department.
