We all used get lot of spams or junk mail in our inbox. eg : FBI bypasses Facebook to nail you ,ecards,F.B.I. vs. facebook, viagra with the lowest price or some advertisements about medicines,replicas etc(latest addition to this is “CNN.com daily top 10” which is a poisonous virus downloader (screenshot of email and malware scanner result here)).Don’t click these links.because they may be highly dangerous viruses ,malware ,trojans or storm worms.So next time when you get these mails,simply trash it.

Clicking on these links downloads malware into your PC and causing it to become infected with the virus

Here are some tips to protect your PC

 

  • Do not share your personal or financial detail through internet
  • Do not  click links or reply to junk/spam/unknown/suspicious e-mails.
  • Be careful of e-mail claiming to contain pictures in attached files, as the files may contain viruses. Only open attachments from known senders.
  • Validate the genuineness of the organization by directly checking or goggling the organization’s website rather than directly following an suspicious link to the site.
