:shock:
Hello guys,
I'm new here, but I wonder if someone could shed some light on this. We had to rebuild my laptop because I assume I had a virus, a message would reappear Isass.exe cannot be found. So we reloaded from recovery disk, virus checked etc etc when I went on to my email I received a email saying I had sent a WORM_NETSKY.P to a person I have never heard of. Does this mean someone has access to my email?

That virus propagates itself trough email, if you have cleaned you laptop it should be already free of it. Maybe the virus sent that email before you get rid of it.

Here, take a look of this:

I got an email awhile back saying I had sent out an email to some mob, as it turned out I hadn't, Being diligent I went and checked out the page related to the virus and saw it was a email propogating worm. Then checked my own system for it using their guides, No luck. I concluded that the worm picked a name out of the address book and then picked a random name out of the address book to spoof the email from field to that name. Norton Antivirus Fully Updated also didn't find any viruses.

That happens to me on occasion even though I'm protected against the virus in question. Most likely a spoofed address or it was sent from your account before you cleaned the virus.
