    Has anyone else received the FBI Email with virus in the attachment? I received one today that comes from security at Microsoft stating that the attachment contains a virus update to protect against the FBI attachment. Contained Microsoft address and everything. Even had a link to my local internet provider. Luckily it was caught and deleted.

    Yeah, everyone has. You do know that a person/virus can put any address as the return address on an e-mail right? In fact, almost all of the header information in an e-mail can be faked.

    I haven't gotten it. Why do I always get left out?
