Subject: [mso] Mystery email things (Outlook Express)


> I keep getting messages such as this:
> "This e-mail in its original form contained one or more attached files
that were infected with a virus or worm, or contained another type of
security threat.
>
> The following attachments were infected and have been repaired:"
>
> The "attachment" that is included is the Microsoft Home Page.  I get one
or two a day. The messages are essentially the same, and are (allegedly)From
Customer Support or Symantic Virus Reporting or something. The Subject line
is usually "Critical Update Patch" or "Security Alert".
>
> I confess that I looked at the first one I got, but I did not open any
attachment. Now I just keep deleting these messages, but I am puzzled as to
why I am receiving them in the first place. Is it just run of the mill Spam?
