    Default Batch file warning

    Hi All, <BR><BR>Somebody out there loves me soo much that they sent me a file, asking for help, that when I opened it to see what they wanted, my OS (win 98) got completely compromised by the Batch file hidden inside the attachment. <BR><BR>Granted, I should not have opened the file, but being a participant in a few forums and having had members send me files before asking for help, I didn&#039;t think far enough ahead to prevent this. <BR><BR>I join these forums to help others and to get help when I run into problems. Having people out there send stuff like this to me makes me think twice about offering my help to others. I guess that no good deed goes unpunished. <BR><BR>I enjoy the feeling of community and like that I can help or get help as I want. But I don&#039;t need this crap. So here is a warning, should any receive an email from JMOORE@VERTAC.COM with a note that asks for advice, don&#039;t open. Just delete the note and report the sender to your ISP. Let&#039;s stop this **** now.<BR><BR><BR>__________________<BR>Bastien <BR><BR>There are many ways to skin this cat, but it still tastes like chicken<BR>
