Beware of Virus laden email

  1. i just wanted to warn everyone that there is a virus laden email running around......again!!!!!!

    it comes in with the subject: snow white and the seven dwarfs-the real story. do not open this at all. it contains an attachment that has a worm virus in it. fortunate for me all that happened was that i got the *@#$%*! scared outta me. my anti-virus proggy did it's job and corraled the virus and prevented the attachment from opening. a simple click! and the email was deleted with no harm done. hope this proves to be helpful.

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs...wow, that's an oldie! I got one of those well over a year ago. As soon as I saw the attatchment was an executable file (exe. extension) I deleted it, STAT! Lucky me for being so suspicious...I didn't have virus software installed at that time.

    Moral of the story: get a good anti-virus progam, and keep it updated!

    After I opened it, quite by accident...I was like OH #@%#&*&^!! but then calmed down when I saw that the anti-virus had done it's job. The more I thought about it the more I remember that one flying around a yr or so ago...it just burned me that someone has decided it would be a fun thing to do again....

    Funny thing...it wasn't my Norton Anti-Virus that caught it. It was a program that I downloaded on the recommendations of a friend. It is called AVG and it is a free download for personal use or you can purchase the corporate copy. Updates once a week. Got it from c/net......I would reccomend it to anyone.
