VIRUS ALERT!
Posted by Gerry Brinkman on 2005-05-17 13:25:33


A few minutes ago, an email was sent out to some or all of the ST: ACTD Addresses apparently from webmaster@acalltoduty.com (spoofed) with the suject line:
YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT IS SUSPENDED FOR SECURITY REASONS


and bearing an attachment with the filenames of either "info-text.zip" or "email-info.zip".

If you receive this kind of notification from any @acalltoduty.com address, you are advised to ignore it and delete it without opening it. The attachment is a virus of unknown origin and description.

As a reminder, Network Operations does not suspend email accounts unless it is at the request of a Game Manager of one of the ACTDR games, and anyone in that categorey will already know that it was done and the reasons why. Notificatiosn like this of any kind would not come from the Webmaster.

I have included a sample of said email below so you can see what to expect.
