November 5 2010 Virus and Spam Newsletter

Hello! Can You Believe It’s November?
Hi again, I’m Rayna Battle and I am your Virus and Spam editor at BellaOnline. In this edition of the newsletter, I want to warn you about a new virus that’s going to be a real pain for e-mail users.

WARNING: If you receive an e-mail from someone that contains a link with any part of following -planetkart. prato. it/ to. php - do NOT click on it. Delete the e-mail immediately. If you have already clicked on it, run your anti-virus program without delay. Then be sure to delete the e-mail right away. The link is phony, and if you click on it, you will download a virus that spreads itself by sending itself to every e-mail address it can find on your PC. Anytime you receive an e-mail from someone that contains a single random link and has been forwarded to several people, BEWARE. Send that person a new e-mail asking them if they sent the link to you. This virus seems to be targeting Yahoo and Hotmail users by compromising their email accounts. If you have an email account with either of them, and suspect that your account has been hacked, change your password right away.

As a reminder, I post new articles to the Virus and Spam site every Friday. The subject matter will vary, always relevant to the site of course. You can read more about the newsletter in the Newsletter Article.

This week's newest articles are: Spam – How Do They Find You? and Norton Internet Security 2010 Product Review.

Here’s an update - I decided to send the newsletter once monthly. I will send it on the first Friday of every month. Please note: if I feel that you need to be warned about an especially dangerous virus, trojan, worm, or other malware, I will send out a special newsletter with the word WARNING! in the title.

Have you visited the Virus and Spam forum recently? It's chock full of posts, polls, and fun info so be sure to check it out!

Thank you so much for your subscription and I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. Don’t hesitate to ask me for help with your computer problem. Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
