question unknown address and exe

Feb 26, 2004, 7:03am
It's human nature to be really curious to know whats in an email. You sit
there and ponder "hmmmm should I or shouldn't I?" lol. Then you think "hmm
my scanner would probably catch it if it has a virus" (but it doesnt always)
I used to do all that. Curiosity kills me. LOL. But then I think "what do i
care what it is? It's just not worth the chance you take in opening it" Now
when i see something i dont know about in my email i simply delete it
without giving it a second thought. Then forget about it. So just develope
the habit of delete and forget. Works for me :)

TIPS FOR YOUR PROTECTION

TIPS FOR YOUR PROTECTION


Hi everyone. Please read these tips, in case there is something here that
you are not aware of. These are tips to help stop the spread of viruses and
spam. Remember that you will not only be protecting yourself, but the
people that you have in your address book.

1. PLEASE PUT ALL EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE BCC SECTION AND NOT THE "To:" or the
"CC:" section. Using the Bcc: keeps all email addresses unknown to other
mail recipients. Please keep in mind that when other people's email
addresses are visible and accessible, they can easily be passed along from
one forward to another, and may end up on someone's computer that could have
a trojan (worm or virus) or spyware, and then these peoples addresses get
collected and end up getting unwanted things sent to them. It's up to each
individual to protect not only themself but any email friends.

To use the BCC: if it is not activated yet in your email, go up to "VIEW"
and click on "Show Bcc:", then that tab will appear in your email. Now you
can use that and put as many names as you want in there, each person in the
BCC will get the email, and it will not show any other names or addresses in
the email. You will notice that when Bcc has been used, you may notice the
words undisclosed recipients which is for the protection of each person
emailed.

2. Refrain from using the greeting card sites and putting in friends and
your own email addresses. If you want to send someone a birthday wish,
etc., cut, copy and paste the card, etc., into an email. Please do not use
their services by filling out the "send to" page. When you complete these
pages with addresses, these sites are major spammers. They are usually
affiliated with many other sites, and you will start to get spam from
companies and web sites that you have never even visited. Believe me, I
learned the hard way, and had to go shut down my email address, and get a
new one. If it's a flash that you want to send, you can copy the flash file
out of your temporary internet files folder (go to internet options, view
files, then copy the file to your desktop).

3. FILE SHARING PROGRAMS LIKE KAZAA you should think very hard before
using these programs. It's not just a decision, its a risk that if you are
willing to take, you may have to deal with some consequences. I know many
people that have received files that had viruses, files that were corrupt,
etc. Even a corrupt file can cause havoc with your operating system.
Remember that when you use these programs, you are downloading music and
files from peoples computers. You don't know the person, and it may very
well be someone who may not update their virus protection, they may not take
care of their system period, and they may not even have virus protection
period. You just don't know what you're getting. All it takes is one bad
file to screw up your computer and cost you money trying to get it fixed.

4. Downloading Software for free: Keep in mind that when you normally have
to pay for something, but you find it somewhere for free, you take your
chances with these. There are many sites that you can obtain software from,
and many times, there isn't a problem with any of it, other times, there is.
I am just saying that you take your chances, so be careful. Personally, I
have found that sites that contain any porn, you are best to stay away from
them entirely. They tend to be full of viruses. When in doubt......do
without.

5. When passing along an interesting email on to another, copy and paste
the email into another,and remove all of the forward signs and forwarded
addresses. Some people attach the email, and sometimes you have to open an
attached email, then open another email, which personally, is not only a
pain in the butt, but, it makes you weary if the attachment may contain any
worms/viruses. Emails can leave your computer without one, and pick up a
hitchhiker along the way. Personally, I do not open attached emails any
more, so if it's something you want me to read or see, copy and paste the
information into the main email. If I get an email, where the attachment is
an envelope, I just delete it. You can make your own call on that one, I'm
just telling you what I do.

6. Also as an added safety feature, even though Norton scans your email, if
there are attachments, I find it best to save them, then scan them again.

7. Please check the addresses always of what you receive. Certain
viruses/worms will mimic someone's address, but if you look close enough,
you will see an error in the address, if it is coming from an unknown
source. If you receive unexpected emails from what appears to be Microsoft,
or any corporation like that, unless you were expecting it, don't open it.
Some virus and worms that get emailed out will use popular names of
companies in hopes that you will open them. Many times they even use your
servers name.

8. There are a ton of hoaxes going around out there. These tend to come
from spammers trying to get address lists. Please don't pass these along.
You are only making the spammers methods of obtaining address lists more
successful. There are several sites that you can check out whether its a
hoax. When wanting to find this out, in your search engine, type part of
the email. For example, the email regarding the baby needing the
transplant, and stating that AOL will donate 5 cents for every email sent,
well this is a hoax, and if you typed "......needing a transplant, aol etc.,
you will get this turn up. Just be creative when doing your search and you
will be successful. Put the main facts in the search engine. One hoax that
I have seen more times than I could count, is regarding the budweiser frogs
screensaver. This is also a hoax.

9. As for virus warnings, if you receive any from friends, check them out
with Symantec or whichever virus protection site you trust and use. Hoaxes
can be just as bad and annoying as an actual virus.

10. In addition to my Norton doing its daily scans, and live update, I do
manual updates different times within each day. If it were to check in the
morning, there just may be new definitions by that evening. I have seen
that many times. It only takes a few seconds on high speed.

11. Make sure your windows operating system has all of its updates. Please
check yourself manually in addition to its scheduled checks. Patches that
are required can prevent you from being attacked.

12. In regards to some of the fun things you can install on your computer,
be careful in the way that some of them cause conflicts with XP. You are
suppose to try to avoid installing any unnecessary little things on your
system.

13. THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT: STAY AWAY FROM GATOR AND THE BONZI BUDDY. Once
you have these installed they are a bugger to remove. Even after
uninstalling them, they leave behind files in the registry etc., that causes
the program's spyware to reinstall itself if you visit any participating
sponsors of these websites.

what about if everyone on that list that runs a bot in their world get
together and see if there is a common cit thats been in all those worlds.
can maybe narrow it down on who it might be. maybe from the last 3 months?
or at least the last month. anyone that u dont know that comes in your
world. It wont prove who it is but at least be a suspect. Any thoughts on
this idea?

i dont think the hacker is doing it to steal objects or he would keep his
mouth shut. He could give a rats ass about our objects. All he wants is the
kicks of being able to screw us up and give our pw's to everyone else to
steal our objects.He gets his kicks just in being able to do this and and
for us to know that he can. I would think it is a male cit and he's between
the ages of 14 and18 and for some reason this gives him the feel superiority
and that he has control over our paths and us. He loves to see us struggle
over repasswording our objects, loves the attention he is getting while
remaining annonymous, and to show the other bad boys just how bad he really
is. Of course he doesnt realalize he is just a sick hateful jerk! anyway
thats my profile of him, which doesnt mean anything lol. Just my thoughts.

If everyone that has a bot in their world will email me a list of everyone
thats been in their worlds that they dont know i will go thru them and see
if we have a common denominator here. cit names only. im pretty sure its a
cit cause he cant get in worlds that dont allow tourists. and he has to be a
cit to get our emails from the ng's i think

A day is good, a day is better

I think all of you that cuss and use the F word should get out of the ng's.
cussing and name calling is about as low as you can get! show some class for
