WTC Virus Warning

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

During the next several weeks be VERY cautious about opening or

launching any e-mails that refer to the World Trade Center or 9/11 in

any way, regardless of who sent it. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR

FRIENDS AND FAMILY. FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW, "WTC" STANDS FOR THE WORLD TRADE CENTER. REALLY DANGEROUS BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL OPEN IT RIGHT AWAY, THINKING ITS A STORY RELATING TO 9/11!

 

BIGGGG TROUBLE !!!! DO NOT OPEN "WTC Survivor" It is a virus that will erase your whole "C" drive.. It will come to you in the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat, a friend sent it to me but called and warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and now he can't even start his computer!

 

 

Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all. So, if you receive an email called "WTC Survivor", do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer.

 

 

PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE!

The best $129.00 you can spend is to get Office 2003 Students and Teachers edition. You are allowed to put it on 3 home computers (If you have a student in the house once in a while). But the real plus is that you can do away with Outlook Express and just use Outlook. It wont even open pictures until you tell it to and will block junk mail (after you tell it to, it will prompt you also after you have about 3-4 senders blocked). Do a google search for " what does outlook block by default " , you'll see what I mean. Your best defense is to run Winxp pro and get service pack 2, and a good anti-virus program, and a software firewall if you aren't behind a hardware firewall, like a router.

But the real question to ask yourself is, "what could I not replace if the computer died, for me that is , pictures. The other stuff I can reload or download. CD burners are cheap and easy to use, 1 weekend spent learning how to backup your data and then doing it once a month insures that even if you lost everything on your hard drive, you have a copy not more than one month old. My dvd burner came with a backup utility.
