Earlier on tonight a friend came to see me telling me that my email address was sending out emails with dubious links. I checked and lo and behold everyone I have had any email contact with in the past few months had received a dubious email; they were dispatched in batches grouped alphabetically. The messages were the usual naf: "this will give you pleasure (link)", "no more painful sex". This was embarrassing to say the least. All the academics who teach me got it, and the two mailing lists that I run did too (hurray!). I sent out emails warning people not to open them and apologising and now I feel like shit because I feel people will blame me. I haven't got a virus. A friend thinks it might be something called a 'spoof worm' or such like. I've got no idea if it's harmful to other people or not. I've changed my password but really don't know what to do to stop this reoccurring. So anyone got any ideas how to treat this or know where it came from? Cheers.
