Somone send tons of e-mail with viruses to all AVS artist who got 5 stars at winamp. Avsociety mail box got near 30 per day. Becasue my new AVS album has been publised before 5 days I got only 2 to my personal mail-box. At e-mail box my second artist name "Gaziarana Voda" for which I too have 5 starts AVS plugin I too start to recive viruses for now thay are near 20 for 4 days. Hors-Fly, Paranoya, Marco and NimrodFunk other artists with 5 stars too got e-mail with viruses. Problem of this e-mails is not that thay have viruses because we do not opend them but e-mail are with size of near 300k and this full our e-mail boxes.

Did somone else have same problem?
All e-mails contains same text:

English version:
------------------
Hi! How are you?
I send you this file in order to have your advice
See you later. Thanks
------------------
Spanish version:
------------------
Hola como estas ?
Te mando este archivo para que me des tu punto de vista
Nos vemos pronto, gracias.
------------------

Somone to help us ))

It's not just AVS. Everyone all over the place has been getting them. It's become an international virus
Just delete any you get.

Some information about the Virus

Hi,

i just read about this virus on an German board.
It seems to try to delete Files and it scans your "My Files" Folder and then sends itself with some files of your "My Files" Folder to anyone in your Adressbook AND to any E-Mail Adresses in your Browsers cache. And I think that is why the 5 star authors get the most Virus Mails, their E-Mail Adress is on so many pages that so many people load.And as it comes with its own "E-Mail Client" it is very difficult to stop it. You may delete your E-Mail Adresses from all the Webpages, but i think that´s too late.
Hope nobody opened the attachments.

Sturek

I got Sircam, and I can tell you what it does. 1) It is a virus that is in your recycled folder (C:\recycled\SCam32.exe is the file). The SirCam Virus has it's own SMTP mail server (outgoing mail). It then sends ANY file from your My Documents Folder to EVERYONE IN YOU ADDRESS BOOK. How Fun. Expunging it is much harder than sending an e-mail with it.
It is known as the "Friendly" Virus because it has the first line:
"Hi! How are you?"
and the last line:
"Thanks"
It originated in Mexico and that is why it is in Spanish.

Yeah, that's pretty much it. :-\

Well, Virus makers are what help the anti-virus software creators create much better software. Heck, even old virus makers and developers are now anti-virus software manufacturers. AND the old virus makers are developing new virii for companies like Symantec so they have a piece of software that can stop ALL upcoming virii and could possibly download an update with out you knowing, so that you could be protected.

The SirCam worm virus !

All the E-Mails which contains this text is infected by Sircam worm virus:

Hi! How are you?

i send this file in order to have your advice

OR

i Hope you can help me with this file that i send

OR

i hope you like the file that i sendo you

OR

This is the file with the information taht you ask for

See you later thanks.

And the same could be in Spanish too !!
Starting with text :Hola Como Estas

Do not open the Attachments !!!

What the virus does: When you open the Attachment the virus checks all your Mailing list E-Mails and starts to send Stuff to the E-Mails from your hard-drive !! And the files contains this SirCam Worm virus Which is already International problem...

i haver read that the sircam virus was programmed in delphi (language that i am learning) and that it calls on the SNTP function of windows exploits it and it spreads like a bitch... got it 2x in my email... nice little virus (its a worm) but the delivery system could be better and maybe even make it *forgets about it (this is an avs forum not virus creators club)* tee hee j/k its a nasty bugger and i dont trust it 1 bit...
