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 check for trojans, key loggers and the like because those types of malware are often hidden the same way. Apparently people still have to much time on their hands... -Charles
