I just got this swearing email from
Have you guys been hacked?

    [ Part 2, Application/OCTET-STREAM (Name: "swearing_mess.doc") 181 KB. ]

A lot of people would be tempted to open this Doc file to see what this is about. Don't.

You haven't been hacked, it's just an email that says you have. The Doc file is, of course, malware, so if you open it, then, well, you have been hacked!

I'm getting a few of these emails to various of my email addresses.
