    Hello,

    over the last 36 hours I've suddenly received a large number (~100) of returned emails that look like the current "your application" virus (the one that fakes it to look like its from microsoft.com and has some file such as application.pif attached), except that I don't find any mention of microsoft.com in the message source... all I see are my own mail addresses.

    Has anyone had a similar experience? Is this a new iteration of the virus, or am I myself infected and hence sending out these mails?

    Thanks!

    In case anyone else got these - it seems to be the latest variation of the sobic worm "c", which now spoofs any "from" address, not just bill@microsoft.com.

    Cheers.
