Spammer uses newsgroup eMail adresses?!

Submitted by Frank on

Lately I keep receiving spam mails containing a worm. They have the subject "See this patch from Microsoft". Attached is a .exe file which contains a worm.

As I looked at the eMail-adresses which also received this message I recognized some of them from the QNX-newsgroups.

I think I will now be more careful with posting my eMail address in the newsgroups. Maybe the adresses should only be visible for logged in users?!

Hope nobody gets problems through these "worm-mails".
