Friday, December 2, 2005
You may have received an apparently virus infected e-mail message porporting to be from "The C4 Support Team". The message contains an attachment as well as instructions for opening it. Needless to say, the message is not from us. It appears to be a variant of the Mytob virus. We're investigating to see if in fact the message is infected with a virus and, if so, how it made it past our server side filters. In the meantime, don't open that attachment. Just hit delete.
Here is an example of the message:
