I am probably not in the correct place for this,
but felt it important.

I just received an email from SCF member "Ray Rio"
which contained a nasty virus.
I am sure the SCF Ray is not guilty, but someone has hacked
or piggybacked his address book.

SCF members should be vigilant, until someone on SCF
can advise how this may have occurred.

It must have been emailed directly to you. It is 100% impossible for a virus to be sent through the forum email system. It will only accept plain text.

Sorry, but I got it too, reading the re: line, just deleted and presumed hack. <edit> is it possible for someone to access and copy back the email links and mail from another site?
