I not sure that "Security" is the correct topic... but it seamed the best choice... so ...
we working with MS Word 2003 we have created a large document (20 pages or so ) that include photos/graphics. Some of the images will allow me to edit them... other however say that they are linked and cannot be edited.
What we did:
We sent the document using the : file, Send to, mail recipient: in word to an e-mail address...
What the problem was:
when the receiver of the e-mail opened the e-mail all of the "linked" images were replaced by a porn video! ... Ahhhhhg
the file names (as should be from word) are in a numbered sequence i.e. file001.jpg, file002.jpg... but the Jpg extension now reads mvz
We repeated this error when we sent the same file to a computer inside our office.
after a lot of digging around we discovered that the video files were being linked to a porn website http://www.####.########.com
we have done a in-depth search on both the computer that sent the e-mail and the server that the file was stored and can not find any references to the video file or the website on or in any of the files on theses computers.
We sent the document using the : file, Send to, mail recipient(as Attachment) : in word to an e-mail address, with no problem.
this is the only file so far that has had this problem ...
the question is .....
has anybody herd of email attachments being hijacked.
do i have an issue that is going to sneak up again when we least expect it?
