Beware of Tragic/Current Event Emails


Just a reminder that following tragic events, there are some who will try to take advantage of our curiosity and will send emails with subjects referencing those events and claim to have links to pictures, videos or special news stories. Beware that most of those links will actually lead to you downloading malware; trojans, viruses, etc. For example: Michael Jackson Video and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

If you receive such emails, delete them right away. To find out information about the event, go directly to news sites such as: msn.com, news.yahoo.com, news.google.com, cbsnews.com, abcnews.go.com, cnn.com.
