I just got a suspicious e-mail from RPGamer...

I just got an e-mail from RPGamer.com, which has the title [Re: Your letter] with a body containing "Here is the file" and an attachment called "your_letter.pif". I got this from Alethea's e-mail --> Alethea@rpgamer.com

I'm pretty sure what this is, and I dare not open the attachment since I'm almost sure this is some trojan/virus. Can someone clear up why I got this from your e-mail server, and if anybody else got them?

    THAT IS A TROJAN MEO I got one too and Nortons security blew its top at me, ranting on about virus definitions.. anyway I got rid of it.

    I've got them from almost random people on my adress book, and websites I belong to.

    I don't think any fault lies with RPGamer.

    Email addresses are just being spoofed. Nothing new, really.

    Viruses typically forge the headers (To/From) from names in people's addresses book. I get mails from myself (dragon) from time to time. There's nothing anyone can really do about it. :/

    Always check the full headers of suspicious mails to see where they really come from. ^^
