This is weird. I have received about 8 viruses recently as attachments to emails. Luckily Norton found them. They are all just one short sentence eg "stolen" "read this now" "info requested" etc

They all give email addresses where they are supposed to have come from; they look very realistic addresses. Most of them Irish or UK (Im in Ireland). But the weird thing is all the email addrersses are connected to wedding businesses, hotels, stationery etc.

Now there is a forum on an Irish wedding site where I regularly contribute (as I have a choir that sings at weddings) and I have given people my email address. Could this be in some way connected to the site? I think some of the sites who are supposed to have sent me the emails have advertised on this wedding site. Could something have infiltrated their email; but how come no one else is getting them. How could several different sites, in other words, be sending me these? And the common link is weddings....?? :tazz:

Any light to cast??
