I was thinking about this the other day, i decided the only really
security danger would be if the sender knew i was running wine....
not very likely I think. but i got this mail to this address with just
the attachment info.exe. it's a public address, so nothing unusual. i
get them from time to time, lately from china. But this one was from the
mail address quantum_leap at liberto.it
I sent one back and didnt get a miss delivery. liberto seems to be an
the address was so similar to mine to made me stop. Did the virus manage
to run a dictonary, find a connection to my mail and then mail me? i
doubt it. could I easily decompile it and look at its system calls?
a coinsidence ??
I hex edited it. nothing I recognised.
I may play more with this on later.
