I'm trying to find out as much as I can about an AOL ID: <Iamchuck697@aol.com>. Whoever it is, sent me an email this morning that has a RESTART.BAT and a jpg file of a Landa Logo, embedded in it.

How can I find out who this character is? I already dumped the content (program) of the email and sent it to AOL, but I'd luv to know who this is...

It might have been an accident onthe part of the user, since viruses often distribute automatically. I am assuming you were hit???

Contact Member Services at AOL and report the ID, ask them to contact the user and notify them that they have a virus... just and idea.

If your PC is infected, back up all you can and get a copy of Norton Antivirus....

Thanks for the Heads-Up, Beth. I already contacted AOL.

The virus didn't get me, but it could get anyone who doesn't take appropriate security measures. It's called: Cellspacing and the sending ID appears as: Iamchuck697. If it comes to your desktop, don't open it. It also had a Landa, (Logo), jpg attached to it.

AOL is not being "user friendly" about this. Maybe it's because I forwarded the virus to them, I donno know.
