Increased Cyber Awareness
nasty virus is out on the web: This one e-mails
everyone in your box, but hides the person who has
the virus. How? The e-mail you receive appears to
come from someone else when in fact in comes from the
person who has the virus. Assuming you have virus
protection and it removes the virus. In Outlook 2002,
you can right click the from line, choose options and
look at the header and see who is actually sending you
the virus. Yesterday one lady at a climbing
publication was sending viruses all day long. Finally
we called them and told them to un-plug the computer
from the net! They did not know how since they were on
DSL vs dial up! If you have DSL, unplug your Cat 5 (it
is a LARGE cable similar to a phone line) from your
computer until you have removed the virus. You friends
will be happier....!
