Computer virus going around!

I subscribe to Kim Komando as she is a computer guru and this was sent out to her listeners. I figured with all the political forums here in Florida moms we should all be aware.

****IMPORTANT SECURITY ALERT****

There's a dangerous phishing email going around with the subject line: "CNN Breaking News -- Mitt Romney Almost President."

If you receive this email, I recommend you delete the email immediately!

Inside the email are legitimate-looking links that will take you to a malicious website. This site will put a virus on your computer that leaves it wide open for hackers. They can steal your information, including online passwords and financial data.

This is a good reminder to be cautious when opening unsolicited email, especially one containing links. If you have doubts about an email, visit the site referenced in the email manually instead of clicking the links in the email.

This malicious email isn't the only threat out there, so it's also a good idea to have up-to-date security software installed. You can find great, free security software on my site at this address: http://www.komando.com/securitycenter/

Stay on your guard and have a fantastic weekend!
