Warning about spam/virus

I have been getting calls and email from people since yesterday afternoon regarding a bogus spam supposedly sent by me. If you see an emal with "Your Order From Diversify.Com -$150.00", don't open it. It may contain the download.trojan.

If what I understand Larry to be saying, this has nothing to do with whether or not he has virus protection or a firewall. It has to do with the fact that some scummy spammer (or somebody LJ PO'd) is using his name and address to send viruses. Said person does not have to have any relationship to LJ's PC other than knowing that he has an e-mail and a web page and needed a scapegoat for its spamming.

Bad call, Twitley. Someone else sent it (apparently from NYC), not me. They used a similar domain name and bogus email addresses with my domain name as suffix.
I'll buy what I want and already have/use NAV. Active-X, Java, and HTML are turned off in my email program for further protection.

brought forth from the murky depths:

It's called a 'Joe-Job' and if you need further help analyzing the headers or tracking down the spammer(s) the folks over at news.admin.net-abuse.email will be happy to help.
