Also, I can assure you that the viruses are not originating from the criticaldance.com mail server. If you receive an infected file purportedly from someone at criticaldance.com, it is probably being sent instead from an infected Outlook or Outlook Express addressbook residing on a third party's PC.
It works like this: email@example.com
has an address book that contains the following addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org
. The virus looks up the addresses and sends an email to email@example.com
"signed" by firstname.lastname@example.org
or vice-versa. In the latter case, email@example.com
may get a response from the criticaldance.com telling her she sent firstname.lastname@example.org
a virus even though she didn't even turn on her PC.
For example, a virus purportedly sent out by me turned out to have come from "NOKU (dt217-16.vemis.ee [126.96.36.199])" instead, which is not even in the same country as the criticaldance.com server.
The criticaldance.com server is protected from infiltration. Unfortunately, there are many others that are not.
