    Must be pretty rampant atm.

    I just checked my Yahoo mail account and got another one as well.

    But I really don't mind getting, running and uploading em if required.

    Yes my ISP is a Partner with Yahoo mail so that's where they come from, but doesn't Yahoo use Norton AV as there scanner or has it changed?

    Yep, Yahoo mail attachments are scanned with Nortons but it doesn't have the defs as yet and I guess the rogue authors know this and make sure it does bypass at least Nortons for a while.

    When Norton does stop me getting the download then I forward the email to my ISP account to grab it from there.

    Last night I got 2 copys of the iTunes Gift Certificate email, one my inbox pop account and one in my Gmail imap account. The copy on the Gmail server contained contained a virus or a suspicious attachment. It was therefore not fetched from your account carver(at)inbox(dot)com and has been left on the server.. My AV..Avira premium It was a coincidence or not, I really don't think it was coincidence. Avira's Guard was deactivated (red icon); online protection disabled (red icon); last update (yellow icon) showed up to date. I couldn't get Avira started. I tryed in safe mode, I ran the installer again..it worked. I ran a sfc/scandisk I copyed from my Xp Home disk a whole lot of dll files, then ran a auto checkdisk (5 step). What bothers me is a virus or a suspicious attachment wasnt detected by inbox at all :isay: .

    Carver, did you open the attachment that wasn't detected?

    Could be the reason why Avira had been disabled?

    May pay to do a quick scan with Malwarebytes, updated after install of course.

    No, I don't click on spam. Even someone that might be named similar to some one that I used to know, I would look at the emails raw sorce addresses first and I might email or call them to verify.
