I received the following message from Yahoo this morning concerning an account that I have had for years.
The thing is, the mail has a zip file attached. called “info.zip”. When unzipped , the file contains an .exe file. This strikes me as potentially being a virus. Has this happened to anyone here? I don’t want to lose my account (if it is true). Then again, I don’t want to risk opening an .exe file to find out if it is real or a virus.
My company’s IT Staff has informed all employees of this virus. It disguises itself as an official communication, and has a “zipped” .exe file. Our propellor-heads have temporarily disabled .zip file attachments as a precaution.
Don’t run the .exe!
A sure tipoff – the “Message” from Yahoo is as badly written as one of those “I’m a Nigerian General with $58 Million” scam e-mails.
