I have been deluged with the Sir.cam worm for several weeks. Do not know
where it is coming from but it appears to be different unrelated
persons. How I got on their mailing lists I will never know!!!
Carmen, you may be getting those multiple copies because your address
was in an infected user's Windows address book, a problem mentioned
here in one of the AV sites:
The worm may make several copies of itself with different DOC, XLS or
ZIP files attached, depending upon what it finds in the
"My Documents" folder. It continually sends these copies out to
addresses it finds in the Windows address book and internet
cache files, and may send multiple copies to the same address.
It's not all that mysterious how anyone gets on the mailing list in that
it utilizes the address book of the infected people as well as emails in
your email program for addresses. Therefore, we who are genealogist,
are extremely susceptible to these.
Researching the following families: Bottoms/Bottom/Longbottom, Keas,
Stribling/Stripling, Chambers, Hodges, Golden, Sweeney, Lovelace, Welch,
Pettit, Cagle and others.
