Dear Whoever Sent me this mail: WHAT?

It linked back to this, which I have no idea what it is, and had a bunch of other dead links in it. Apparently, someone things I know - what is that supposed to be? Spanish? Not according to every online translator I could find.

A little more research turns up the fact that it's Portugese. I don't even know where that's supposed to be. I hunted down Squawktalk (Another war buddy - language specialist. Was useful when we first landed on Earth, hasn't been useful since.) so I could try and decipher this mysterious message, which may have been incredibly important, or at least amusing. It somehow managed to be neither.

I really don't think I can top that.

So, today I learned that the wonders of the internet allow people to send me messages that don't work in languages I can't read. If it weren't so pathetically sad, it would be funny.

Spam is always pathetic.

And Portugal is right next to Spain.

Normally its from Brazilian online postoffice. only thing is, this is prolly some kind of trojan. I got it from a business contact, so i opened it. The downloaded file being an executable got me worried, but with my up-to-date virusscanner i thought what the hell... Virusscanner (eset) stayed quiet and the .exe stayed in memory. I killed it, but after reboot (i just found out) it was again loaded into memory. My guess is that this program sends itself to your msn contacts. So, now my quest begins to remove this f***er.
