    Its a virus thats mainly spread in E-mail its made some companies have shut down due to this
    its like "Wannacry's" from last month , so be careful with the sites you go yo in your computer
    and your email

    Dont open emails from strangers. also dont click on the links in emails.

    Took me years to drill that into my moms head. Always select no or cancel if given an option.

    I've been washing my hands with soap before using the computer.
    It's the best first line of defense! :D

    You mean that I shouldn't click on that link that shows naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson? I remember a decade ago they had these fake links to "see" naked pictures of Anna Kournikova.


    It's hard to believe that people will still click on unknown links from people they don't even know. But I guess there's still a sucker born every minute. But the biggest problem is that many companies don't filter our emails or sites or attachments and so they get infected by viruses like these.

    I have emails come in looking like they were from me to me & copied to people I worked with. Of course it had an attachment. The good thing was I am the first one in the morning & could send a warning email not to open it.
