[access-uk] Re: [access-up] Johns email

Hi Barry and thanks for your note.

To give you some info on what I believe happened.

The e-mail that came out with my id was mid-morning, when I was actually at
work. My home PC was switched off at that time.

I did receive a couple of the e-mails at work and so was able to see some of
the addresses that received it. There were many old ones which I have not
used for some time. I then remembered that I had, about 3 years ago,
imported my home Outlook address book into my ISP's web mail address book to
see how I would get on with web mail. I did not like it and so just
abandoned the idea.

My belief is that the perpetrator somehow got hold of that address book on
my ISP's site, not my PC.

I checked with some of my contacts to see if they had any damage caused; I
could not contact everyone. Some of them were able to find the e-mail in
their junk folder.


I do run regular anti-virus software checks with regular updates on my PC
and my router has a very firm firewall in it.

Although I feel I have no need to do so I do apologise to the list for any
problems that my id may have caused.


Regards, John

Hi John,

I've put access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx in the CC field.

Just to make it quicker to address you and the list members.

If you wish to reply to me only, reply as you normally would to an email.
If you want to include myself and the access-uk list do a Reply All.  This
is normally Ctrl Shift R in Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Microsoft
Outlook.  Just going with the most common ones.

I've placed your emails to the list on moderation until the dicy issue with
a SPAM email is resolved.

Your not in trouble in the slightest.  You are still on the list and you can
read mails and post to it.  I just want to make sure no more mails go
through from your address that a member could click on and get bit by a
piece of Malware etc.

I want to give the list members the opportunity to help you out rather than
boot you off and say, "uhh yeah sorry dude" "Sort your machine out".

Quick few tips from me,

If you havent' already download and install Malware Bites

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php


Tick to run a  Thorough Scan, not the Quick Scan.

It could take a few hours, so feel free to go to the pub!  Grins

This is a truly amazing piece of anti-malware software.

Also please download and run a free trial of Eset Smart Security Suite.

http://www.eset.com

Have this run an in-depth scan.  Leave the defaults for the moment on it's
scanner.

Let us know how you get on John.

Hopefully you'll get this sorted ASAP.

Barry
