Hope someone can help me.
Lately, every time I check my email I get several "Delivery Notification Failure" and "Returned Mail" notices. Lots of crazy adresses to.
I'm sure I've got a virus or something similiar. What can I use to stop it?
My Virus scanner, PC cillian says everything good.
Spammers will be sending mail to hundreds of other people by forging the headers and making the email appear to come from your address. This is quite common and isn't really anything to worry about. The best solution may be to block emails from the Mailer-Daemon addresses that are bouncing the mails back to you. Otherwise, use a spam filter that automatically moves these mails to another folder or even the bin.
Also, try viewing the source of the email (should be something like "Show Source") to check its originating IP Address. The address in the source should be the REAL sender's address.
As the other people have said, it may not be coming from your pc. Although I would try scanning with at least one other piece of anti-virus software for a second opinion. possibly even an online scan like safety.live.com (yes I know, it's from MS and all you haters out there probably have veins popping out already) but really, it actually is a decent scanner.
are you a victim of phishing? or probably your pc is infected with trojan. try not using your outlook and access your email directly from the web email of your email provider. if you are getting the same amount of emails, then probably you email your account needs to be changed or you have to change email. but if you dont get the same amount of email, man, you need to format your PC.. Thanks.
After some looking into, I think my problem is that my email has been "Spoofed". All the return addresses are different varients of my website domain.
I've scanned my computer several times with the latest updates. I'm using AVG and PC-cillian. They both show nothing.
Any ideas what I can do? This morning I had 39 emails. All "Undeliverable."
You may have luck finding out who sent the emails with tools from sites liike samspade.org. You can then advise the offender's ISP that they are violating a their TOS (unless they're hosted by some not so nice hosts who don't have a TOS). You can then try to get that particular one (or two, three, etc) shut down from the web, at least temporarily. This has worked for me a few times with blog spam.
It is work, but you also don't want some heavy-handed ISP, like AOL to block your domain for all their subscribers based on someone else's exploitation. They only need a few reports to do that, so its good to try and get it stopped if possible.
With that being said, as like already said, if you don't open those emails, you're not immediately at harm.
This is typically a work of a spammer or a virus.
Report this activity to your ISP along with the full headers of the messages.
They will be of some help in solving this issue for you.
Surely they can help since they are also the victims of the spam.
have u event put your email at public site or other? Spam Bot will check emaill address in web sometimes I make my email link as mailto:zaqyREMOVETHIS@myemail.com this is make our email save.
