email viruses

  -NickH- 12:38 24 Sep 03

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been inundated be the I-Worm/Swen.A. virus (sent via an email pretending to be a patch sent be Microsoft) I am getting between 20 and 30 a day....

I use Grisoft AVG AntiVirus which always removes the attachment, and informs me of it.

I also seem to be getting several emails from microsoft and informing me that a message addressed to [email protected] or [email protected] could not be delivered....

(I am assuming that AVG tried to a reply to the virus'd email to advise them to check it out, but the reply addresses are bogus)

Can anyone tell me where this virus is picking its victim's addreses from? It is driving me mad... Is there anything I can do to at least cut down the amount of these emails?
