What are the files associated with KLEZ? I just got an email [red]from pacman9d64@yahoo.com[/red] containing Rock.exe (87.2KB), ATT0004.txt (0 bytes), and button[1].htm (3.87KB). With the following text: This is a nice game This game is my first work. You're the first player. I wish you would enjoy it. The mail has the [red]return path of gideongunsales@comcast.net[/red].Anyone know if this is KLEZ or have I gotten some new animal? This is the second weird mail I've gotten from my business email (also used on my website) the other was 2 files and one of them was catalog.??? Jake

Sounds klez-ish. Klez uses exe's, bat's, etc. The extraneous files may be random files lifted from the sender. This is often harmless, but can sometimes lead to sensitive data being leaked from an infected computer. It also can grab a email from the sender's address book to stick in the "from" field, so the person it looks like it came from is likely not the person who is infected. If it's not Klez, it sounds an awful lot like it, IMHO. Viper Out

I am getting weird crap like that too! Mine come up as Klez on the mcafee program. Thank goodness I've kept up with it. I don't open anything up from someone I don't know. I just delete them. When I checked the delete file not long ago I had 19 e-mails with the Klez virus![shock]
