Hey guys I got this email from Rogers the other day:
"We have reason to believe that a computer connected through your Rogers Cable Modem has been infected by virus or has an application that is misconfigured.
Typically, these types of viruses do not affect the performance of your computer and instead carry out attacks and malicious activities behind the scenes, without your knowledge. This type of network activity has the potential to negatively impact the overall service. For your reference, we have included a technical summary of the activity for your reference at the bottom of this e-mail message.
If you are unable to remove the virus within 48 hours, we will have to take additional steps to protect other customers and the Rogers Yahoo! Hi-Speed Internet network including temporary service deactivation. Should this occur, we can reactivate your connection once the virus has been removed by calling into our call center."
Ummm I'm on a Mac!!!!! We don't get viruses do we?? Anyone know what the problem might be? Anyone ever get this message???
the email further states:
"High volumes of requests causing Error or Canned (127.0.0.1) responses usually indicate a Worm, Virus, or Bot infection. These viruses will usually attempt to connect to a controlling server or attempt to perform a Denial of Service attack on a specific server on the Internet. Once the desintation is identified, the owner of the server may remove or change the DNS entry causing future Virus infected computers to fail resolving the name. this causes an error to be generated."
