    Okay, I got an e-mail from "[email protected]" with the subject line "RE: your details." The e-mail says the following: "Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients. To:[email protected]
    Subject: Re: Your details
    Date: Sun, 18 Apr 2004 16:08:19 -0400
    Message appears to contain possible virus attachment"

    According to the e-mail, my computer sent a message to "[email protected]" that was infected with the Sobig.f virus. It goes on to display the message I supposedly sent on Sun, 18 Apr 2004 13:08:16 -0700, which is basically a page full of random letters (part of the header said this:
    Content-Type: application/octet-stream;
    name="your_details.pif"
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
    Content-Disposition: attachment;
    filename="your_details.pif")

    But the header also says that the message was sent from my computer at 16:08:19 -400 on Sun, 18 Apr 2004, the same time that the reply was sent.

    Am I infected? The reason I feel safe opening the e-mail is cuz I read it on a Mac, not my personal computer.
