From a Dec 4 post on Mikey Richardson’s LiveJournal:
OMG! I’ve been hacked! My rig’s got some kind of virus on it and I just got a crapload of messages from my friends saying I sent out some email worm to them! I checked my outbox and there must have been about 6000 messages with an attachment! I’ve been spamming everyone I know! I had a good buddy who’s a real geek check it out and he traced it back to an IP somewhere in Russia.
I’m reinstalling the OS as I type this on my Mom’s Vista Mac. I should be back up and running later tonight. In the meantime, if anyone knows anything about 126.96.36.199, let me know. I want this sucker!!
