Seasonal Warning

It's Christmas and you don't expect people to take advantage of the season but the hackers and virus creators are still busy so beware ..........

This morning I received an email reporting to be Seasonal Greetings from my Family & Friends. It provides buttons to click to "View your Seasons Greeting Video Card" Had I clicked it I would have been prompted to open or download a file which would have been malicious code and would have infected my PC with a virus, trojan or just simply given access to my files. Please be very careful about what you click on over Christmas as it may not be what you expect.

Have a very happy Christmas.
