Here is an example of a recent new virus. In this email, you can see that the message appears to come from Amazon Local. It contains an attachment that is supposed to be the order details:
Then it ends with “.exe” which means that it is some kind of program! We should assume that it is a malicious program!
Clicking on this link will activate a Trojan downloader that will infect your computer.
The best thing to do is to delete this message immediately.
If by any chance you have clicked on this link (or any link similar to this) you should do a “system restore” as soon as possible to revert the operating system to an earlier date. (Our program Magen has a button for that.) This will prevent viruses from running on your computer until your antivirus program is updated with the virus signature. (It usually takes about 3 weeks for antivirus programs to catch up with new viruses.) When your antivirus program is updated it will then remove the virus corpse.
Be “Malware Vigilant!” Better safe than sorry.
