Possible reasons you received this message are as follows: 1) You sent an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to complain to or notify this user about their SPAMMING, sending an e-mail with a virus, sending an e-mail that has content that may not be appropriate for minors and/or to remove yourself from a mailing list, etc. 2) Someone else sent an e-mail to email@example.com and they are using your e-mail address as their return/reply-to address. If this is the case, we are sorry that this e-mail was sent to you. However, please read it, as it contains information about the Virus we are trying to stop from spreading across the Internet. 3) Your anti-virus software sent an e-mail back to firstname.lastname@example.org to inform them that the e-mail they sent contained a virus. Most of the time, this e-mail is sent without your knowledge by the anti-virus software itself. 4) Someone has subscribed the e-mail address email@example.com to a mailing list to which you are also subscribed. The program that sends this message out tries to make sure that it is not responding to any e-mails that it receives from a list server by checking the full e-mail headers for list information. Some lists do not provide any keys in their full e-mail headers that we can use to keep the our program from responding. If you think this is the case, please contact your list admin and have them remove firstname.lastname@example.org from their member list. This Spam, containing "Snowhite" in the Subject, is a Virus called Hybris.gen. It sends out e-mail from your e-mail program with attachments also infected with the virus, in an attempt to infect more computers. This virus scans incoming and outgoing mail and http traffic for e-mail addresses to send a copy of itself to. The e-mail the virus sends out use a fake or spoofed "FROM:" address of email@example.com to hide its tracks. We registered the domain http://www.sexyfun.net to provide you, the Internet user, with information about this Virus, tips on how to detect, clean and trace it, and how to protect your computer from it in the future. Here are some other facts that may answer questions you may already have: 1) We do NOT maintain any mailing lists on our system. 2) This user (hahaha) does NOT exist on our system. 3) The e-mail you got with the From: field of firstname.lastname@example.org did NOT come from sexyfun.net or the web hosting company's network. This e-mail address was FAKED or SPOOFED. 4) The e-mail you got is a way for the Hybris.gen Virus to spread itself around the Internet just like the ILOVEYOU Virus that surfaced a year ago. 5) The "Received:" line of the FULL e-mail header will tell you the IP or Computer name of the person(s) that sent you the Virus. Most likely, it came from someone you know who is unaware that his or her computer is infected with the virus. 6) By visiting the domain http://www.sexyfun.net, you will find helpful information about the Hybris.gen Virus and links to software you can use to clean your computer if you are infected, as well as other miscellaneous information. 7) We did NOT create the virus nor do we know the person(s) who created the virus. We are NOT affiliated with this person or persons. The same applies to our web hosting company. NOTE: As long as you don't run/open/double click on the attachment of the e-mail, this virus should not be able to infect you just by reading the e-mail.
