    snow white..

    i have just recieved an email containning a joke about snow white and the seven dwarfs. Half of the joke was in the email and there was an attacthemnt with a .gl9 file extension.

    the originator address was also unrecognised, i returned it with a warning email. Is this a potential virus, has anyone else heard of it or recieved it.?

    WTF? reporting him? He probably just opened to the virus and it spread to everyone on his contact list. That's no reason to get banned from your ISP.

    i understand that - i havnt reported him to the isp. the virus is being spread from the email address above, this appears to be a genuine address used as an ML, so i have made the network administrator aware of this.
    including a copy of the message headers.
