    Default How come i recieved a mail from myself?

    How is it that i can recv email from my account to another when i din even send anything and the mail read like this:


    Do not reply to this message

    Dear Customer,

    Our robot has fixed an abnormal activity from your IP address on
    sending e-mails.
    Probably it is connected with the last epidemic of a worm which does
    not have patches at the moment.
    We recommend you to install a firewall module and it will stop e-mail
    sending. Otherwise your account will be blocked until you do not
    eliminate
    malfunction.

    Then below there is an attachment which goes something like this:
    Update_KB6681_x86.zip


    Can someone tell me what is going on?

    Do not open the attachment. It is most likely a worm.
