Please do not post virus warnings, almost every case is a hoax.
You may think you are providing a service and we know your intentions are well meaning BUT they are inevitably hoaxes aimed at panic and also many are accompanied by a 'fix' which is designed to cause a serious problem in your pc.

Yes, there are nasties floating around but go to a genuine anti-virus site if you want to know about everything floating around in cyberspace.

Do keep your anti virus software up to date.
Do not open e-mails with attachments from unknown senders.
Do not click on links in emails from unknown senders, be wary of links from known senders if it looks suspect.
Do not e-mail everyone in your address book to warn them or forward what you have received.

Thank you.
