Anyone Receiving Virus Infected Emails?

  1. Was wondering if anyone here at ET has received any virus
    infected emails with a .exe program in it during the last few days?

    Not an email one but theres a computer shutdown bug infesting the hell out of here(Australia) at the mo (W32.Blaster worm,msblast.exe)
    Sounds like it causes unexplained shutdowns which could be handy in the middle of a trade.

    If you have'nt done a windows update lately might pay to check on it.
