I have a client who receives faxes to email.. they get it sent in a tif format. When they open the tif they see the fax plus additional pages of irrelevant images... mainly this particular one was full of anti Semitic material, and this WAS a Jewish synogue... ok so it gets worse!

I saved the .tif file to the desktop and the images changed, the first page was the original fax, and the second one was a screen shot I put on this workstation of a crystal disk report... I forwarded it to myself and it is ONLY the original fax image with NO extra information.

So I guess some how this .tif is hijacking images on the computers?? I am so freaking confused by this one..

Where the heck do you start?

I have to do a virus scan on the machine I guess.. unless some one has other ideas..
