Today, I received six emails that would appear, on cursory inspection, to be carrying the MyDoom trojan (not ‘virus,’ surely?). All the messages were, curiously, to my How2.co.uk account, not the quernstone addresses. Nevertheless, this is the first time I’ve received contaminated mail during the widely-publicised outbreak, and I’m absolutely delighted. SoBig.F et al made me feel like a total outcast.
Of course, since I’m on a Mac, the ‘virii’ are entirely harmless. Well, I suppose I could run them in Virtual PC, just for kicks and all, but there’s only so far I’m willing to go to prove a point.
