Download The Cleaner from to detect and kill it

Norton should pick it up if you have the latest update.

Is that definately the extension it isnt .eml.exe or .eml.scr. If its just .eml its probably a failed delivery message and the file attatched is the mail you sent. .eml is a file extension for email for outlook express etc.

Did you reply directly to the email if so that will explain a failure of delivery due to the reply address being spoofed (made up)
Still becareful dont open the attatchment because it could also be a trick.

use the view full headers option and just look for email addresses. Whats there?

it has a virus in it so it must be a trick m8

ive tried every anti virus soft (all on latest updates) i can think of and none of them can find it on my system, including the cleaner. My recycle bin was showing that something was in it on the desktop, but it wasnt showing anything when you go into it. But that has now gone!!!! strange. Anybody got any ideas what will detect it?

As youve scanned with numerous av's then we can asume 2 things

1. Your not infected
2. Its not a virus

Have you tried a trojan scanner such as the cleaner. If not do so.

If that comes up with nothing there is possibility the script is some sort of exploit code (if its a hotmail account possibly tring to steal your password)
or it could be a plug in for a trojan anti virus software usually doesent detect these and they are easily faked as a legitamate program such as an mpeg.

Also viruses that use scripts to install can only do so if you have scripting enabled and are running Internet explorer as your web browser or outlook express to view emails.

Also make sure your using heuistic ****ysis in your av's settings this can detect viruses that havent been discovered yet. As there is the possibility of it being an undiscovered virus.
