virus: Invitation Virus - 05/08/09 12:13 AM
I received this email from a friend and thought I'd pass it along: You should be alert during the next days:Do not open any message with an attached file called 'Invitation' regardless of who sent it, It is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list, that is why you should send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is better to receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.If you (3 comments)
virus: Its not Microsoft Emailing You! - 12/07/08 01:43 PM
Tis the season for yet more new virus, phising scammer and trojan downloaders. You might receive a friendly notice from Microsoft (yeah, right) telling you about new updates to download. DON'T CLICK THE LINK. It takes you to an IP not run by Bill & Friends. Only use the windows update link in Windows or turn on automatic updates. Here is the email: Install a New Microsoft Update !
Updates are ready for your computer. Click here to install these updates: http://www.microsoft.com/download/update. exe
virus: It's not a Hallmark card - 09/15/08 09:47 PM
By now, most of us are pretty savvy when it comes to spoofed emails or virus generated email. There is a nasty new email going around that contains the worse virus created thus far according to CNN and Microsoft. I got an email from a friend about it. The virus comes in an attachment called 'POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK'. The return address may come from someone you know, regardless don't open it. Basically the virus destroys the zero sector of your hard drive. So far, there isn't a repair for it yet. If you receive a mail called 'POSTCARD' even though sent (14 comments)
virus: Viral Email that you don't want - 08/03/07 11:50 PM
Over the last week we have been bombarded by emails featuring attachments in a zip file. So have a few of our friends as well. Usually the title of the email sounds official enough, like invoice, past due, etc.... the emails of course were nothing more than a virus. Sometimes your anti-virus software will not catch virus files hidden in a compressed attachment like a zip file. If you get these emails, don't unzip the attachment or preview it either. Simply delete them and make sure your anti-virus software is up to date. You should also have a program installed that will (7 comments)
virus: Greeting Card Virus - 09/30/06 08:13 PM
I'm sure everyone has received an electronic greeting card from someone. There are tons of sites that allow you to send a "card" free, as well as attach a electronic gift card to it to various electronic and brick and mortar retailers. Unfortunately, there is a new virus making the rounds that comes disguised as one of these cards. However, they are easy to spot if you know where to look. The email comes claiming to be from a family member or loved one but doesn't list the name of the sender. They all have a link to click to view (6 comments)
virus: Ajax coding and Web tools - 08/04/06 06:59 PM
Most of you reading this are wondering what the heck is Ajax coding and Web tools?! It is technology used on such populars sites as myspace.com, google maps and the coming msn windows live that makes them more interactive. Why should you be concerned? Ajax is becoming the standard for interactive websites. The topic was discussed at the Las Vegas Black Hat cybersecurity conference. There have been virus and malware attacks already, including the harvesting of e-mail addresses to installing adware (malware!) on individual pcs. One attack spammed myspace user's friends list to include the spammer, thus gaining him popularity on the (0 comments)
