Computer Virus

I have received several bounced emails recently with virus attachements and a couple of emails from people who thought that they received the klez virus from me. I checked the headers from the original email and it is coming from someone in Ottawa, not from my computer. Actually, contact@commando.org is an alias email address and that is not even set up on any of my computers.

Viruses like this tend to send themselves as one fo the people from your contact list, not as you to make them harder to track down. If you ever receive email from contact@commando.org, delete it. I never send email from that address, it is only an alias that forwards to my real email address. Also, if you live in the Ottawa Valley, use Sympatico and have ever written me at that address, check your computer, you may be the one who is infected.

If anyone wants to check their computer for free online, just click here then press the Go button on that page, then click on the Virus Check button. It will take you to the Symantic Web page.

    Sorry, yes, contact@commando.org was used for the forums so I have changed it to forum@commando.org, so if you receive any emails from now on from that address, delete them.
