E-Mail Malware

I am a IT guy at my full-time job and I just wanted to pass on a warning to the public that I also passed on to my co-workers so we could prevent problems on our internal network.

Below is what I passed on to everybody in the company.

There has been a lot of Malware that has been being sent through e-mail lately that has .zip files attached that contain Viruses, Trojans, or Malware.

Please be extra cautious and don’t open anything that you get in an e-mail if you aren’t 100% sure of the source.
