To many of the old soaks on this forum, this will be like teaching your grandma to suck eggs ( never did know if she could, way to late to find out now ). But to the newbies take note click here
It appears that e-mail attachments promising all forms of titillation and naughtiness but in fact loaded with unmentionable nasties are making a comeback.
So keep the AV up to date and never ever click on dubious attachments, even when apparently from a friend. You are most unlikely to like the results.

Good shout,Belatucadrus. A timely reminder for the 'old soaks' and the young guns...and for grandma's to double check whether the egg is a hardboiled one...(:

I suppose it was just a matter of time before they resurfaced, although not a newbie, its always good to have a little reminder.
After all, the nasties are always just a click away.

Had one last week from Christopher, coincidentally my eldest son's name, but quickly realised his is always from Chris. Binned immediately.

I've had a plethora of mails from different banking organisations this last week. I don't have accounts with any of them.. Binned immediately.

Always a good idea to have the preview pane disabled too.

I've been getting them too, Bingalau.
