Watch out! There’s a new virus in town and it breezes by virus scanners. The Bagel.j virus is an annoying little critter that sends out mail with a randomly generated password to an attached zip file. Mail virus scanners, which have to de-compress any attachments to see what’s inside them, cannot decompress this file because it’s password protected. So, what can you do to protect yourself? You can either pay a pretty penny for virus software and religiously update it, or there’s a very simple proceedure to get yourself free virus scanning. Look at the message, is it in broken english? Does it make sense for you to be getting that message from that person? Are you expecting to receive a zipped .exe file or an attachment with two extensions like .scr.exe? Probably not. So do yourself a favor and just wise up three notches when you’re checking your email and you’ll be fine. Also, if you get a virus and need help cleaning it up, check out . It’s always online and always up to date and it’s free! Can’t go wrong with that one.
