RE: [IP] Viruses and Malware



Resending the emails with the intact links just makes it more likely someone
else will get infected

Subject: [IP] Viruses and Malware

We have seen a drastic increase in people getting infected by viruses 
and malware as is indicated by this type of email being sent to the list:

>Are you ready to improve your relationship?..
>http://www.mfi.es/html/friends_links.php?bisiteid=16h3

Please do not click on the links in these types of emails.  It will 
only cause you to become infected.  Some signs that these emails are 
not good are that they have more than just IP in the To: list and the 
subject is either blank or has another oddity such as just a number 
or says, "No Subject".

Members who have found that they have sent out one of these emails 
need to disinfect their computers.  We will be unsubscribing anyone 
who is infected until your system is cleaned by using an antivirus 
software or a malware remover such as Malwarebytes. Please make sure 
your antivirus signatures are up to date.  Just because your new 
computer came with Norton or McAfee does not mean you are safe unless 
you subscribed to the updates after your trial period.  There are 
also many free antivirus options out there such as Avast and AVG, etc.

Thanks!
