I'd just like to remind everyone (who has them)) not to pay any attention to the spoofed mail messages being recieved at their UGN Security mail addresses.

Some of these messages are including an attachment which is most definatley a virus in every shape and form; note that if I ever do send you a message, it sures hell won't contain one ...

The following are some examples of what people may be recieving:

Message containing Virus name: W32.Beagle.A@mm
Quote:
Dear user of e-mail server "Undergroundnews.com",

Some of our clients complained about the spam (negative e-mail content) outgoing from your e-mail account. Probably, you have been infected by a proxy-relay trojan server. In order to keep your computer safe, follow the instructions.

Advanced details can be found in attached file.

Kind regards,

I'm not sure what is contained in test.zip but I'm sures hell not going to open it.

Ok, a few things if you recieve a message LIKE that from UGN.

1. I don't sign a message that way, comeon, it's UGN Security if anything.
2. If you spam from your account, you don't recieve a notice, it'll be deleted on the spot.
3. Who the hell opens a message that way?
4. "Some of our clients" clients? We have clients? since when?
5. Use common sense, if you see an attachment from a non existant email address, don't open the damn thing.

I was searching Google for information on "proxy-relay trojan server" and I found this thread.

I received one of these (with an attachment) from someone pretending to be from the management dept. at Yahoo.com. Here is what it read:

Pay attention on attached file.

I did not open the attachment, of course. I sent it onto Yahoo, but I thought that perhaps others would like to know about this.

Some people do not think, they merely react, when they see an attachment from a source they believe is trusted.

Anyway, that's all that I wanted to say.

My one sugguestion, virus scan everything; validate headers and be sure it's meant to be sent from the source.

My wife just got the same form but it said it was from Cox. she called me in and said hey how do i open this thing even though NAV was flipping out,lol. we had a long discussion about security after that. i recommend everyone turn on email scanning, NAV just deletes it as it comes in to you inbox if it is a virus.

I was sent one but the security system on our network computers deleted the file
You can use a racer program to find who is sending the emails I don't know the URL but of you google it there are tons of sites

Not too hard to view the mail headers and report it to the ISP
