Apache2 notice


Recommended Posts

Got this in an email tonight...


Dear Customer,


Our robot has detected an abnormal activity from your IP adress

on sending e-mails. Probably it is connected with the last epidemic

of a worm which does not have official patches at the moment.


We recommend you to install this patch to remove worm files

and stop email sending, otherwise your account will be blocked.

Didn't think I had that port open. Apache2 was running but didn't think it was open. In fact went to my router port 21 was not open or I didn't have it setup to access the net. Is this a legit email?




This is the address it came from...... dtb@apachecorp.com


Edit: Personally I don't think it is legit.

This message is spam, designed to trap Windows users into installing malware. My ISP has issued a warning that there are variations that masquerade as coming from ISP "customer support" sites.

What I figured and deleted. Also using Mail in OSX I'm not sure how to find out about the sender.......... yet. I looked around a bit last night in the mail program but wasn't able to find anything. I did do a google search for that company but nothing came up right away so I just said the heck with it. lol

To see full headers for one e-mail, when you open the message go into the View menu, select Message and then Long Headers (IIRC). If you want to see full headers for all messages you open, you can set it in the Mail menu, under the Viewing icon - once there, set Show header detail to All.
