Another E-mail Virus

Another E-mail Virus

I just came across a new e-mail virus that is starting to spread itself around the Web. It comes as an e-mail from the Department of Justice. Keep reading for all the details!

This e-mail virus is similar to other attacks from earlier this year that claimed to be coming from the Better Business Bureau and the IRS. It comes as a very official looking e-mail, stating that people are involved in a Department of Justice investigation and the details of the inquiry are attached in a file. If the file is downloaded, it immediately infects your computer with a Trojan horse virus. Here is a screenshot of what the infected e-mail looks like:

Currently, no antivirus companies have a patch to protect anyone from this attack. If you receive an e-mail like this, it should be deleted immediately. If you do that, you’ll be just fine. Until next time, stay safe out there!
