Spoofed email coming from administration@calaisturbo.net

I received this email this morning;

Dear user of "Calaisturbo.net" mailing system,

Our antivirus software has detected a large ammount of viruses outgoing
from your email account, you may use our free anti-virus tool to clean up
your computer software.

Advanced details can be found in attached file.

Password:

Sincerely,
The Calaisturbo.net team http://www.calaisturbo.net


This is obviously not from me, DO NOT run the program on your computer and DO NOT blame or hassel me if you received this email, I had nothing to do with it, my computer is not infected, and I'm really not sure how to stop it anyway.

Cheers

- sin

Could it be someone immitating you, and sending out letters pretending to be someone from admin.
Bloody annoying anyway.

sounds like a mail spam bot to me, just delete it or change your email address

If only it was so simple. And most of us don't want to change our email address every day.



Ok for a bit of background:
There are certain spam-bots which trawl the intarweb for email addresses which might be visable on a website (both mine and sins are posted around a fair bit), these bots can then send emails which appear to come from the email address they have "found". Because they are usually run from some dodgy server in another country you can't do much about it except ignore it.

Not to mention theres been a pretty bad worm going around lately aswell. I've been getting email from people from the forums and elsewhere with the virus attached. Just a note to have some up to date virus protection installed for safe measure.
