Watch out for the Valentine’s Day worm!

As you receive loving Valentine’s emails and electronic postcards, you might also receive a worm!  There is currently a worm outbreak today, including electronic greeting cards.  Be careful what you click as it might download malware to your computer, further infecting your files.  Not only do you get a worm, but your computer becomes part of a storm worm variant where it can, in turn, spread the worm to other computers.

Past Valentine’s worms have included “The I Love You Virus” which was pretty nasty for 1 or 2 years.  If you notice any subject with “Love You” or Valentine’s-related, be sure to double-check who it is coming from.

Sometimes, when these viruses or worms get too bad, you’ll require the help of a professional computer technician to further help.  Please be alert to prevent such malicious content.
