In the last two weeks I have recieved 5 copies of an email infected with the virus : [email protected]
I had the sense to scan the attachment the first time I read the mail, so happily I have not been infected.
However, someone I know, who has me in their Outlook address book, or Yahoo/MSN messenger contact lists obviously is infected. The virus changes the "from" field of the email so that it always reads "[email protected]", so I don't know who the mail is really coming from.
What I want to know is, is there any other way of tracing the sender of the email so I can let them know to virus check their system?
BTW, I have already tried running the IP listed in "from" through tracert command (times out) and through Visualroute, and it gets as far as a pipex adsl dynamic address pool. However, I know no users of pipex, and the only two ADSL users I know have already been ruled out, so no luck here either.
Can anybody help? If it is of any use, I have addded the full headers of the infected mail below, with the "to" fields removed so that my email address remains private.
