Hackers Try Another Way to Tempt You

Hackers are always creative in the ways that they try to deliver malware. This time the malware is delivered by means of a spoofed email from airlines:

“Northwest, Sun Country and other airlines warned their customers Friday about phony e-mails that claim to be from the airlines with confirmations of recently purchased tickets — but actually contain a virus.”

Other airlines are issuing warnings. This include Midwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines. – This may be a good time to make sure that your anti-virus software has been updated and has the latest definition. That should be a regular routine. And a reminder – a freeware program like DropMyRights can limit the damage if malware somehow does access your computer.
