Wacky email viruses

hahah. I just this email.
    Hi! How are you?

    I send you this file in order to have your advice

    See you later. Thanks
and attached is the W32/SirCam@MM Help Center virus. HAHA! Your lame little windows viruses can't hurt me! I laugh in your face!

The odd thing is, that I don't recognize the email address I got the virus from. I'm not sure who this person is and why I'm in their outlook address book. Strange.

I'm thinking I should email the person I got the email from and state that they have the virus. Is that the right thing to do?

I'm not quite as active with email communication as you. It surprised me when I got it.

Did you get any of the spanish ones?

I got the EXACT same email tonight. It was from an @home.com email address. I just deleted and moved on.

The virus will generate it's own reply to address - it can be someone you've never heard of. They're a pain to track, and sending mail to that account won't get it fixed, because that's not who is actually sending it. It's madness.

Our IT guy at work went off about how great pine is today....
