Topic: IMPORTANT INFO, READ THIS!!


During the last 24h I have been under heavy attack by the
SoBig.f-worm. I have received about 1000(!) mails...
If you have tried to mail me the last couple of days, and I haven't responded yet, please mail me again. Your e-mail is probably deleted!
I don't think that my mail system has been infected by the worm, so mails from me should be safe.
Infected mails are about 100kbyte big, so if you get any mail that size from military-quotes.com please do not open them!
Use the "contact me" link at the bottom of the page to mail me.

Lucky for you!

over 1000 mails, each over 100kb was a bit to much for me....
Luckily it was just one of my e-mail adresses on military-quotes.com that got spammed down. It was an old adress that I don't use, so I just shut it down.

I heard about one person here in Norway who received 27000 mails in just one day! 27000*100kb= 2,7gbyte of mail in one day...
I hope he didn't have an ISDN connection..
