Latest virus targets corporate America

Check your email box lately? Perhaps you saw something with “Here you have” in the subject line. Many employees at big name companies did as well. In a seemingly targeted attack, Comcast, ABC and Coca-Cola and others received the peculiar email. So tempting that many simply clicked the attachment and unknowingly installed the virus. The virus reportedly spreads using the victims address book and then attempts to steal passwords. McAfee Labs has been investigating the latest virus and released an update. The originating email address are no longer active and the attacks have since moved on as quickly as they started. So please do not click on any attachments in any emails you receive, and if you absolutely have to, save the file and scan it before opening or running it.
