Internet Tech Guy wants to help spread the word to “Get Safe! Stay Safe!”
Many folks got hit today (September 10, 2010) with a fast-spreading virus with a not-so-masked URL to a domain in the UK.
Please do not click the link! Pay attention to all email and think before you click. Here is a quote from my bank’s website:
“My Bank” is aware of a global e-mail virus with the subject line “Here You Have” or “Just For You” that contains a fast-spreading e-mail worm that mails itself to all the victim’s e-mail contacts. When the e-mail is opened, the victim sees a short message and a link that appears to be to a PDF file. If the PDF file link is clicked, the computer downloads the worm virus and propagates itself by sending e-mails to everyone in the victim’s e-mail address book. If you receive the e-mail message, delete it without clicking on the PDF link. Also, ensure your computer is updated with the latest antivirus and firewall software, anti-spyware and pop-up blockers.
Internet Tech Guy recommends you add common sense to your tool kit and NEVER click on a link from a source you don’t know.
Get Safe! Stay Safe!
