    When I downloaded the WhenU toolbar (paid version), I used an email addy specific to WhenU. Well, today I get an email to that email address which contained the W32.Sobig.E@mm virus. I suppose WhenU's systems could have been infected, however considering I got 2 other infected viruses at the exact same time to 2 different email addresses at the same domain, my money is on WhenU sold the addy to a spammer and the spammer was infected. Can't be certain, since the virus spoofs the From header.

    Either way, I'm very shocked at WhenU. Tsk, tsk.

    It's Your Money. You earned it. What are you going to do to make sure you get to keep it?

    They just wanted to make sure you had that information. After all, you opted in for it, right?

    ABW needs to pressure TigerDirect to furnish MS.B with a free case of mouse rubbers as she's progresses through the BHO sewers.
