[Dixielandjazz] Strange Net Events
Tue, 6 Aug 2002 23:09:50 -0500
In response to the recent query, I have been having all sorts of new
Internet problems since I got on DJML in January, 2002.
1. I have had messages returned to me that I did not send.
2. I have been informed that I sent a virus-laden message to an addressee
in Georgia I never heard of.
3. I have had numerous virus-laden messages, mostly from unknown senders,
intercepted by my ISP.
Much of this has happened since I upgraded my Norton Anti-Virus package.
Only the very first of the NAV file sweeps ever turned anything up, and that
was maybe one infected file.
Also, I don't always remember, but I try to change my DJML posts to Plain
Text. Today, I got a digest with 48,000 lines in it, of which 47,000 lines
were useless code. Please remember to change your settings when posting.
I am not enough of a computer expert to comment on the viruses which seem to
be swirling around DJML. All I can say is that I didn't have any of these
problems before January.
