Here’s a reminder from way back in 2012 on how to detect and identify these viruses when they pop up in your mailbox.

  2. DO NOT OPEN ATTACHMENTS. Right click and save them to a temporary location on your computer, and check it out before opening it.
  3. DO NOT CLICK ON LINKS IN EMAILS. Hover your mouse over the link and be absolutely sure it is a legitimate link before you click on it.
