I’m getting dozens of messages per hour saying that e-mail I never sent can’t be delivered or that attachments I never attached include a virus. The messages are labeled “thank you,” “my details,” “wicked screensaver” and “your application.” And “Warning: E-mail Viruses Detected.” As a Mac user, I’ve felt immune to most of the usual worms, viruses and whatnot. If anyone can tell me how to deal with this, I’d appreciate it. And if I don’t answer your e-mail, it may be because I accidentally deleted it with the junk. (I’m also getting a lot of legitimate e-mail due to a free-lance piece that just ran, so it’s particularly frustrating to be flooded with junk.)
Update: It’s SoBig. Here’s advice on how to protect your computer.
