  1. Well, in one email check, I just got a STAGGERING 7 Emails, all infected with the Klez virus! One of the emails had a client's email address on as the sender, and another, identified as "lukri@earthlink@net, even had this in the subject matter body text...

    Yeah, I know how Klez works.. Are you folks getting a lot of Klez infected email? Mine was Klez.J (using Nod32) ..

    I have been averaging 3 infected emails daily, today was a record.!!

    Are people that stupid?

    1. They probably don't have an Anti Virus...
    2. They open up attachments...

    Thank God I have MailWasher, and of course, NOD32.. !

    This virus is not dying out, isn't it?

    Kelz is the "gift" that just keeps on giving, no matter how hard you try to educate people via Av's, etc. :p

    Just put their heads in the sand, ass* up and klez just keeps on parking it's "bicycle" right in it.
