    MMS photo in a zip from Vodafone - or is it a trojan? 17th Jan 13 at 12:28 PM
    We have to be so careful these days with what arrives in the inbox, even when we know we have a pretty good antivirus (I use Kaspersky). I have already avoided the final step in opening this mail attachment (I was gambling by opening the zip but I did feared to open the EXE of the same name inside).

    Can any of you techies tell from the email headers below whether this really was from Vodafone?
