Here is a email I received this morning from [email protected] – This email is designed to scare you into thinking your computer has been hacked and being used to attack other systems. The email even goes so far as to attach the I-Worm Stration Virus and pass it off as antivirus software.
We have logged a fraud activity from the IP-address belonging to your
computer at more than 17 Web-sites and have received abuses

The abuse copy is sent as an attachment to this letter. Please learn this.
We have added our utilite that would help you to find and remove any spyware from your PC.
