Hi all! This may be a stupid question but here goes:
Is there anyway to get someone to take an infected computer offline?
Despite receiving 2 attempts per day for over 3 months (several different worms and viruses) we have not been infected. However, 2 mutual business associates have been infected 3 times between them and this is really beginning to tick me off.
The infected system is almost certainly wide-open for whatever may come along, including new and unknown viruses and virus-types.
Is it possible the source IP in the message header routing info is spoofed? It appears legit i.e. the owner fits the profile of the type of business the infected email address is coming from.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
