This is a hoax, the FBI has been warning people not to open the attachment. If AVG caught it, you are probably OK. I always delete viruses, but that is your call.
I just went to my email and had a message on Nov. 21, 2005 from (email@example.com was logged.) I debated about opening this message and started not to until I scrolled down and on Nov. 22, 2005 I had a message from (Admin@cia.gov You visit illegal websites) Well, the only sites I go to are quicken, cnet, dell, research shopping, citi, etc. You get the idea. I don't go to illegal websites. Anyway, curisosity got the best of me so I opened the email from the fbi. This was the message.
(We have logged your IP address on more than 30 illegal websites. Important: Please answer our questions. List of questions are attached. Yours faithfully, Steven Allison 935 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Room 3220 Washington, DC 20535 Phone (202)324-9000)
I called the number but did not get an answer.
My AVG message:
(Virus found. File list 469.zip Virus Identified I-Worm/Sober.CFR
Attachment moved to virus vault)
I think I have been conned. I don't think the message was from the FBI but a person putting a virus on my system. What do I do? Do I contact the FBI? Do I leave the virus in the vault or do a reformat to make sure that it is gone. How can I prevent someone from doing this? I have never had this to happen so I am frantic and scared. Please tell me what I need to do about this mess. I know that all of the computer geniuses can halp a grandmother. Please help me. MamaJenn
