    I am undergoing a very valuable investigation and desperately need your, (The sailing populations) feedback. Attached is a short questionnaire, there are only 7 easy to answer questions. I need to gather enough information together to create a giant database. So if you could just take a few minutes of your time to have a look, then copy and paste the questions into a word document and email them back to me, along with your response's at:

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.
    More about the investigation is explained in the attached document.

    Does anyone know if the link in the post above is legit?
    The message in the download window looks different from my test attachment.

    The attachment appears to be fine to me - the AV here is not finding it to be infected, and IE, mozilla, and firefox are identifying it correctly as a .doc word document after attachment.php hands off the word file.

    The above document contains the following text:
    As a word of warning in general though, attachments are NOT currently scanned for viruses server-side as they are posted so it is wise to be cautious of any executable attachment and to run any files including word docs through a local virus scanner. It is on the to-do list to scan all attachments the moment they are posted instead of after the fact, but this has not been automated yet - hopefully in the next update. Thus it is wise to always be cautious opening any unknown file, keep all your software patched up to date, and scan any suspect files with a local AV before opening. Even when the server-side AV is scanning immediately instead of after the fact, these same cautions should still be taken.
