For those who are being sent viruses, there is some protection and recourse. First, Norton Internet Security ($69.00) is great at protecting your computer. It provides you with a firewall and you can block offensive e-mail addresses and it will scan all attachments to e-mails. I have it installed on my PC at home and have found it very useful at blocking the bad things that are out there. Also, and I will verify this with the PC weenies at work (read network guys), but the e-mails that are sent to you contain an IP address and the originator can be found. I know with Norton Internet security, I can geographically locate any computer in the world that tries to attach to mine. I have not done much investigation of retracing e-mails, but know that it can be done. The Secret Service and FBI do it all the time to incarcerate people who send threatening e-mails. I will post more if anyone is interested. I am fairly certain that sending viruses is a crime and possibly since the internet is used, it may be a Federal crime. More to come.
