Warning about dubious emails

I have just had a batch of "returned" emails which I did not send, addressed to people who I have never corresponded with, and whose email addresses are no longer valid.  It would seem that they were sent out, late last night, possibly carrying a virus or some other nasty and others may have gone to valid email addresses. They have forged sender email addresses, which incorrectly suggests that they came from an account associated with my web site. Most of you will be well aware of the danger - but if any of you are running a computer with out-of-date security software this should serve as a reminder that you should consider updating it PDQ.
