Tech Tip – E-mail Attachments
In today’s day and age, we would like to believe we have learned about the risks associated with opening e-mail attachments. E-mail attachments are frequently used as a means to transmit viruses through the Internet onto your computer. Best rule to live by, don’t open the attachment unless you are expecting it. This includes e-mails from close friends and family. Too often the viruses come from someone we know. They might have opened the virus which in turn e-mailed itself to all their contacts or their account may have been hacked. If it comes from a someone like the IRS, FedEx, or UPS, there is a very high chance that it’s a fake e-mail and the attachment is a virus. Best advice, if it’s not expected, delete it. Don’t want to delete, contact the sender to verify the legitimacy.
