Folks I am that person who, without knowing sent you a virus. I receive many emails on my site from people who ask questions regarding fishing equipment and such. yesterday I opened one from a young man asking for my advice on particular rod and reels. I opened the file (without regard to the extyention) only to find an full list of equipment requiring my input. The person who infected me was deliberate in their actions. This file then send itself to everyone I have contacted through email.



Please delete any .bat file or even attachements I have sent. I rarely send anything anyways.



Again my appologies, the system has been fixed at my end.





P.S....this idiot knows his equipment though!

Hey Pierre, You know that guy who sent that email, He might not even know he did it either. This thing picks a random file off your hard drive and adds itself to it. That is why the double extension at the end. You might want to send him an email letting him know his system is sending out a Virus. and to go the this link so he can get it out of his system.



Take care, And hope to see you in a few months

Thanks for the heads up. I was just about to send you an e-mail and ask if it was legit.



It came to me as a .xls.pit so I deleted it right away. Usually any attachment with 2 extensions is a dead give away that it's a virus.



take care,



Marke
