Ok, as you have all heard there is a new (old) virus running around on the net via email called SoBig...Well I didnt make any announcements since it seemed to be contained in our circles but this morning myself and a few other racers woke up to a large number of emails from other racers, we are trying to pinpoint who is the infection point, but just beware you might be getting a ton of infected emails....

Here are some links...

To add to John's info, some of these emails appear to be coming from R/C sites and R/C related companies - which kinda sucks.

Just beware of emails with attachments or the email contains the following:

[b:1nh3xwh7]Subject:[/b:1nh3xwh7]
* Re: Details
* Re: Approved
* Re: Re: My details
* Re: Thank you!
* Re: That movie
* Re: Wicked screensaver
* Re: Your application
* Thank you!
* Your details

[b:1nh3xwh7]Attachment:[/b:1nh3xwh7]
* your_document.pif
* document_all.pif
* thank_you.pif
* your_details.pif
* details.pif
* document_9446.pif
* application.pif
* wicked_scr.scr
* movie0045.pif

The attachment is the big giveaway...Just be carefule when receiving an email with attachements...Any attachment that is a ".pif" or ".scr" is [i:1nh3xwh7]usually[/i:1nh3xwh7] a bad thing :-P

And One last thing, if you are NOT running Anti-Virus software, you should be at ALL TIME, especially one that scans your email, my personal favorite is Norton Anti-Virus....

If you are running Anti-Virus software, be sure to keep your virus definitions up to date, otherwise it is like not having it running anyways....
