    i work for an Internet company.

    Actually those emails are a type of spam. These emails multplies itself!! These programs are intelligent enough that it takes addresses from your address book and sends it to them including yourself. Some of them contains virus, some are just ads or scam attachment.
    Meron na ngang viruses embedded sa mga .doc or .jpg file attachments eh.

    Doublea is correct, dont open email attachment with .exe file from suspicious mails, its like opening a can of worms

    ako, rule of thumb ko ay if don't know the sender personally, i don't open any attachments sent with the email.

    kung baga "if you are not open, then i don't open"

    har har har !

    or you can open your email through your email server's web interface if it has one.

    best bet is to change your email client from outlook to eudora, mozilla mail, thunderbird, or some other non MS application.

    Even if you open you email using web interface clients such eudora, OWA or what have you and you open up the attachment, then you are triggering the virus to explode and run wild in your email system.

    Reading email messages will not harm you, but opening the virus triggered attachment will do.

    There are smart email viruses right now that it has own email engine when triggered and will flood your gateway with spam emails. In return DOS, Denial of Service attack.

    Good rule, but unfortunately, not always applicable nowadays.

    There are viruses which go through your address book and use them as the sender address. So pag natanggap mo, the sender IS someone you know.

    Damn virus writers! Scum of the earth!

    Email viruses also known as spammer extracts email addresses and information from our own address book and contacts. They use these addreses and randomly bradcast emails. There are time that they just juggle up our name and add characters then use it as the sender.

    Emails are NOT being delivered from origin to destination directly. Our emails will hop to other networks till it reaches its final destinations. Along the network hopping there are sniffers that extracts infos to all emails that passes their networks. In the process will collate valid email addresses and the reason we are receiving unsolicited emails.

    Is our email safe for eavesdropping? Yes it is, the email messages are encrypted during transmissions, only the headers or email addresses are plain text. If you want a totally secured emails we must use digital signatures.

    eh ang problema nang-galing kay Mr. ODELL ONG ung e-mail..un pala virus ang laman ng attachement..badtrip. Kaya ayun dami ng virus-infected ang natatanggap at naipapadala ng e-mail account ko. Sabi ni bossing JEDI form of Virus Worm yan..baka NETSKY Virus daw. Meron naman daw nakukuhang anti-virus dito..kaso tinatamad ako eh..hehe

    Just sharing.

    Dati ang dami ko din na re-receive na ganyang mga mails with attachment from an email known to you. But when I installed a Symantec Antivirus 9 (corporate edition). I de-delete nya ang attachment automatically.... so wala ka ng chance na ma explode ang virus. Most of them were NETSKY virus. Some are Beagle. Symantec 9 is far better than 7.6.
