There is a very simple way to protect yourself from these viruses.

Simply do not send, click, open, save, or run executable email attachments. DO NOT open any attachment that has an extension .exe, .com, .dat, .bat, .vbs, .pif

Be aware that even trusted sources may fall victim to worms and viruses and send them to you unawares!!! The best policy is never to send or receive executable attachments by email.

If you must send or receive email attachments, please carefully ensure that all of the following are true:
  • Know exactly what you are distributing before you distribute it via email (don't inadvertently victimize others for the sake of a funny program or document, and don't desensitize your friends from being cautious by sending frivolous executable attachments).
  • Know who the e-mail attachment is from before you click, save, or run it.
  • Be sure that you were expecting the attachment from a known and trusted user (though even this is fallible).
  • If you have any doubt please delete suspicious email messages/attachments and send email to the author telling them that you suspect a virus.
If you are running a Virus Protection Program, i.e. McAfee, Norton, you need to update the DAT files from the software manufacture web site on a regular basis. New viruses come out daily.
Know who the e-mail attachment is from before you click, save, or run it. Be sure that you were expecting the attachment from a known and trusted user (though even this is fallible).
