[sharechat] Ciberlynx Florida Users and Viruses

From: "" <>
Date: Fri, 22 Aug 2003 13:12:12 +1200

Hi All, 

Anyone who has received a message from 'me' within the last 24 hours 
please get rid of it.   I have been off line for a day so they are not.

I know that some of these have been sent out with my name forged as 
the source, as I have received several bounce messages.   If you look 
at the header you will see that this message is not from me at all but 
from a United States ISP, Ciberlynx Florida ( I/P No.

Over the last 24 hours I have received over 100 unsolicted messages 
from this source.   This is, I suspect,  as a result of a  virus.

The virus messages have the following headers:

"My details", "Thank You!", "Details", "That movie", "Wicked 
Screensaver", "Approved",  "Your application"

Generally any messages with these headers should be destroyed.

***Here is the crunch point of this post.***

Since I don't know anyone in Florida, I either have a 'secret admirer' 
who has stored my address on their computer somewhere (nice), or my 
address is being held by a spammer.   Perhaps Philip might like to 
check up on his Sharechat subscribers from Florida with this in mind?
