    This line is in an email

    'gt' IMG id=3DMA2.1137171302 height=3D276
    src=3D"cid:image002.jpg@01C6501A.843B7A20"
    width=3D318 border=3D0 DATASIZE=3D"16900" 'lt'

    It's the IMG line, one of many, in an email going around
    BEST POSITIONS IN BED

    Somehow I don't have warm fuzzies :-/

    looks like a corrupted 'get' command. If you replace the first 'gt' with
    'get' it resembles a command to load an image, followed by some of the
    specifics of the message. Since the image has a CID, its (or was)
    included in the message.

    Since its in an email 'going around' why even bother with it. Sounds
    like porn images to me.

    I found that in some of the drug ads that used to appear in my mail.
    The ad was in a picture rather than text or html. Clever. But what
    does "cid:" mean? Is that like "ftp:"?

    When content is included in a message it gets a CID number - Component ID

    gt = "greater than", lt = "less than", the two symbols that start and end an
    html tag. Must have been converted instead of interpreted by your e-mail
    program. And somehow they're in the wrong order...
    The rest is just a simple image tag; nothing funny going on. Don't lose any
    sleep over it :)

    @01C65.... will convert to 132.107.122.32 which belongs to
    Army National Guard Bureau or
    123.148.133.223 belonging to Asia Pacific Network 123.0.0.0/8

    It's not porn - dogs & cats if it's the email a co-worker was showing -
    What bothers me is none of the images are in the email (I can post the
    whole thing if you want.) The first thing that came to mind was it is
    some sort of address scraping scam. Or the images which you can
    only see by going to the site contain .. what was that MS PrintKill
    problem. Here is part of the mail:

    Component ID an identification number for multiple components within a
    message
    if you include one (or more) components in a message, each will have its
    own CID so it can be called by the message and placed where needed.

    for example:
    a message may be /text/ <image> /text//text/ <image>/text/

    the images are not listed within the text, they are seperate components.
    a tag calls the image when its needed and places it as intended when the
    message is displayed.

    Its like a web page. Images are not always stored directly on the page,
    but are 'called' from eslewhere (even a remote server!) when needed.
    The user sees them where intended but they are not there in the message
    source, they exist in another folder (or even on another server)

    External Protocal request... cid: 2CF4C0

    I keep getting this icon popping up suggesting my launching an application with a related (familliar?) link: cid: 2CF4C0 that helps one to launch "old links." I suspect it came as a result of my downloading a Google web browsing tool called Web Accelerator. I never get odd pop ups like this unless its my firewall and spyware warning of something. I then had to remove this new program, but this new pop up continues. I feel a little bothered and invaded after a couple of years of freedom.

    Any suggestions from the experts? Should I be concerned?
