    I keep getting 5-7 messages a day in my Hotmail inbox with the subject "Undeliverable mail", "Returned to sender", etc. all with sizes of 145k. There are no attatchments with the e-mails. Anyone know if this is a worm that's going around? I know there is the fake MS update patch going around. I get those as well.

    Haven't been able to find much on the net about this. This morning I checked my Hotmail account and there were about 15 of these messages which filled my Inbox of course.

    what does your "outbox" or "sent items" box look like? Are there a shitload of messages that are attempting to be sent out? Almost sounds like somebody has your password and is using your mail account for spamming.

    I doubt I have the virus. I always keep Windows up to date and don't download attatchments, but without the latest updates, there is a flaw in Outlook that allows the virus to run on your computer by just previewing the message.
