Default BE AWARE of Virus Emails!

BE AWARE! Emails are being sent from infected computers to ALL the email addresses that they have ever received email from. The email from someone you think you know will say "Hi" and include a shortened news link. IF YOU CLICK IT - YOU WILL GET THE VIRUS! Keep your virus software up to date and from a high quality software company. A good virus protector will reject the link.

I have gotten a couple from a Craig Sutton that said "news" and didnt open them? and as allways the pill to fix all ills with wille emails too.
Probably Microsoft employees trying to weed out us old computer users burning the midnight oil.

Here's a new one! Be careful! It appears to be from GasEngineTom, but the return address is MarionAbstract.com

It includes a link that may offer you a virus!

Default Re: BE AWARE of Virus Emails!

I have gotten a repeat email from Service@PayPal.com stating that my account is restricted, due to feed back from a buyer. I have never sold anything on eBay, so I have deleted the emails and didn't click on the link included. Kinda annoying when the same email shows up twice in one day!

I got a couple today and without opening either of them the virus program popped up warning of the things. I use Avast free edition and it has saved me a few times.

My brother got a virus on his Mac a couple months ago that required him to reload the system. As mentioned, keep your virus software up to date kids...
