WKletz virus

  Siani 21:28 05 Apr 2003

I've been inundated with e-mails trying to send me kletz32 virus which fortunately is being blocked by anti-virus. I block sender but of course it changes the sender name. 3 times it appears that I sent it to myself! Now I am being sent something by John Rolfe37 offering me Kletz immunity which has an attachement on it that hasn't been blocked. John Rolfe37 already was a sender that was blocked because of the virus. Anyone know what I should do? Cheers.

You are doing the correct thing, Siani, don't open the attachment. Download Mailwasher click here and delete the emails as they arrive on your email server. They will stop after a time.

or try this click here if the names keep changing ie "someone"@something.com just add the @something.com to blacklist with a * before it.it will look like *@something.com.any messege from that address will be sent to a spam folder of deleted as you choose.i was getting things like this all the time and every time i blocked the address it didnt work.this little program is great!

Thanks - I did a search for wklez and my computer did find one file which I deleted. Is that enough? I've found some info on McAfee which gives a procedure for removal that's a bit complex for me.

Getting worse - Yes I've got Norton Anti-virus which I update every day. It has blocked about 30 of the emails over the last 24 hours but 2 have got through with their file attached which I have deleted. Ran another scan which said that it found klez - couldn't quarantine so deleted. Box came up said still infected. Have just downloaded Stinger which is telling me I have Nimda virus. Getting a bit scary for me.
