Explanation about viruses
1) Virus is a little program that its activity can destruct/destroy some files and a computer system. If you don't open this program, it still inactive and could not destroy anything.
2) The virus program brought to you by an email as attachment, sent by spammer or
known as cracker. It has a server itself (virus server).
Virus attachment cannot go into another email then become attachment of that another
email, such as an email was sent by user (netter), members of group, moderator
etc. It must be brought to you by email virus itself, that's why, we called them
VIRUS EMAIL or VIRUS SPAM.
3) VIRUS EMAIL would be sent by any email address of any account, because some crackers always search through over the internet zone and catch emails addresses on boxes FROM, TO: and CC: of sending email.
They also search to found out addresses book from mailbox of users anywhere, So that why the virus email looks like was sent by our friend, our member friends, our moderator etc...and might be able even by email address yourself.
4) To identify virus attachments:
it has a small size ( 181-285 KB )
it has extension file name as the following list (don't open it):
And so on..
Also the sender often use a fake name like this HotMovie.MPEG_ _________ scr.
Actually that file is a virus file with extension .scr
NOTE: Be aware, safe to be safe is that just open only *.JPG , *.JPG, *.JPG files.
5) By having experience you could identified an email virus from their SUBJECT,
most of them contains an amazing statement or unusual word,
such as the following examples (don't open it):
Hey, dude, it's me ^_^
Will you be my valentine?
See you to night.
I love you with all my heart.

Re:This is your photos!
and more, ...
Then be aware that since 2006 there is a new one ,
a virus type of warm was able to copy your sending email included your name, email address and subject line repeatedly ,
and that copied email then consist of virus attachment attached by sender. And then this emails are send for flying over the internet zone. If mailbox of someone have ever infected by this virus, when they sent an email to you or to any group or anyone else, so you or any group or anyone else said above will receive that virus copied emails , usually every time and repeatedly the same email. This is difference from spam email that sent by personal address which no virus attachment, but many, many unexpected email from your friends or or anyone else or advertising sender...
There for internet users must be ready and must have good anti virus SW, anti spy-ware, anti spam even though they must still to delete some unexpected emails they received every day..
When you received virus email, delete it straight away. Don't open it otherwise the virus sender will see your account is still active.
If you write an email, don't write subject line with words look like virus emails or your email will be deleted by recipients who understand about email virus.
BEWARE it's dangerous.
If one of your files has an infected virus, it could infect other files and
then all files in your hard drive when you opened or accessed it.
Don't open or reply virus email otherwise the sender will see the account still active..
