Don't let your computer catch a virus this winter



Photobucket

The newest virus circulating is
The UPS/FedEx/DHL Delivery Failure...

You will receive an email from UPS/Fed Ex Service along with a packet number.
It will say that they were unable to deliver
A package sent to you on such-and-such a date.

It then asks you to print out
The invoice copy attached..

DON'T TRY TO PRINT THIS.
IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS!

Pass this warning on to all your PC operators
At work and home.

This virus has caused Millions of dollars
In damage in the past few days.

Snopes confirms that it is real.

I love how gullible people are to respond to email. I suspect they are the same ones who try to deposit the fake cashiers checks that come via mail to gain access to your bank account.

There is a reason that the number one way to compromise any system or computer is via "human engineering". The humans are the gullible and not overly bright part of the chain.
