Santa’s Bureau of Investigation, Day 4

Posted: December 4, 2007 in Uncategorized

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, let me know.  I want this sucker!!
