If your E-Mail program tries to, or starts to download a file or program, Stop it!. If you need to, turn your computer off, or hit Control, Alt, Delete.
Or better yet, get a good Anti-Virus Program for your computer.
Check out Panda, Or F-Secure.
In the past week I have received hundreds of infected E-Mails. They all are basically the same. There is a simple subject line containing anything from ďHiĒ, to ďHere is the EI6 Patch You NeedĒ. They all have no text, just an attached file. A file that is really a virus, and itís hitting the world real hard right now. And it tells me lots of folks and big companies are sloppy about computer virus security.
Now you can read on and get more info, or do what you really need to do. Get an Anti-Virus program and Use It.
The good folks at F-Secure put it this way
ď The e-mails sent by Klez can have a wide variety of different subject fields such as:
How are you?
Can you help me?
We want peace
Where will you go?
Look at the pretty
Some advice on your shortcoming
Free XXX Pictures
A free hot porn site
Why donít you reply to me?
How about having dinner with me together?
Never kiss a stranger
The message has no text in body and the attachment name is random.Ē
