Interesting warning. I don't think it belongs here, but interesting still. I guess as an American citizen, I would look last to an Indian head hunter. It is never a good idea to open a document emailed to you, even from someone you know.

WARNING TO JOB SEEKERS Do not open microsoft word, microsoft excel, or adobe pdf files that you receive in your email box from indian headhunters. Indian headhunters are using "permission to submit forms" and "empolyment application forms" in order to install viruses on to your PC. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT OPEN THESE TYPES OF EMAIL ATTACHEMENTS FROM INDIAN HEADHUNTERS. Unless, you want Indian headhunters stealing your online passwords to your email and bank account, downloading your personal files, and spying on your internet traffic. You should insist that all correspondance are handled as regular email text. In the event that you opened this type of document and fill it out, you should reinstall your computer immediately. I had some luck reporting this problem to microsoft and getting them to patch microsoft office against it. However, given that the indian headhunters have distibuted and misdirected blame across 100's of headhunter, its unlikely they are going to give up this bad practice since they can deny they were responsible for it and make somebody else take the blame by hiding behind them. This virus technology is thanks to the US government hiring and training indian contractors to study internet viruses since many indian contractors also moonlight as indian headhunters that place themselves in the job application pool first for these types of jobs over local American job candidates.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
