I'm so sorry you got hit by this, and that it came through here.
I think my ISP intercepted it for me, it didn't make it to my mailbox.
I'm looking at it now in their junkbox. I see where the virus is
hiding, there's a 1x1 pixel image in the post that was detected by the
Roadrunner system anti-virus. That should be where the trigger is
The exposed link directed you to ......... "http://jw**ige.ru/"
Which you might recognize as a Russian site from the .ru
Which pretends to be a 'Canadian Neighborhood Pharmacy'
All of which you might have seen, if you clicked on the link. If not,
now you know what was sneaking about.
In case you didn't see that, now you know.
I gotta advise you and anyone else that doesn't yet know .........
NEVER click on a link that appears as the only item in a post that has
no header or topic.
It seems that they are always very bad, malware, trick links.
You might also find it to be interesting that Yahoo has no record of
the fellow and this list doesn't have him as a member. There must be
something new that the spammers has discovered to use through Yahoo.
I've deleted his messages and placed a block on the name.
He also sent to these folks.......

Looks like we got the 'M' addresses from an infected computer.
I did this look through the post while not using Windows. I'm quite
convinced it is a good thing to use a low cost Linux, older and not
your main newer Windows computer, or a Mac on-line for general
Internet use. I learned this method from experience. There are just
too many Windows virus's and Malware's running wild in the Internet.
I run Windows at home, but never let it on The Net. You can see
why......... Even a free older Windows machine liberated from a closet
retirement running Windows or Linux [also free] makes a great Web
surfer. Just don't connect it to your real computer without running
strong anti-virus protection on it and any files you might download.
Connect to your main computer -only- when it is disconnected from The
Net, and just to transfer very completely anti-virus tested files.
Such is my experience, and such is my advice.
Just one thing more, if you do this with a Windows system, make a
system image disk [dvd] or custom restore disk that contains all of
your settings and lets you reload Windows to that surfer computer
without having to sit through the hour plus of installing from a plain
Then it won't matter much if your Surfer computer gets infected.
You'll be able to wipe it and custom reinstall from your restore
It sounds like a pain. But it's a worthwhile goal to do sometime in
the future. You'll sure feel much better protected.
Best to ya,
