I spotted this via a Tweet by Patrick Madrid. While you are at it, would you please follow me on Twitter?
At PC Magazine there are some tips to spotting malicious email.
I get a lot of email. A LOT. My antennae are constantly waving and on alert.
Malicious email from nefarious ne’er-do-wells can contain malware or can be phishing scams.
You don’t want to be the victim of identity theft.
I keep my virus scanning software updated. I run that software. I run other malware detection programs periodically, at least once a week. I am very careful about incoming mail. I also have a LifeLock account.
I wish there were a filtering program that could identify and eliminate stupid. You should see some of the stuff I get. But I digress.
So, get smart, get cleaning and prevention software, get a UPS.
Do you just open everything that comes into your inbox? I’d rethink that if I were you.
Lot’s of us live a great deal of life online. We have to keep our heads in the game.
