Spam Fighting Tip: NEVER EVER set your own email address,
or the entire domain of "nckcn.com" in
your Postini filters as an "Approved sender". You are completely
defeating the most important way to stop a spammer from sending to your email address. This is the first, and easiest
way spammers reach email addresses, sending spam from your
email address to your email address. You also want to be very careful with whom you set up as your "Approved Senders", since putting any email address on that list completely defeats, and by-passes, the anti-spam capabilities of
your Postini filters from that address.
Tech Tip: Help Fight SPAM
- Participate in keeping the filters accurate by sending your unfiltered spam messages AS ATTACHMENTS in email to
. This does not guarantee that these messages will be filtered in the future, but will make it more likely. Remember
holidays are especially busy times for
spammers, so be extra cautious!
Scam Alert – Fake Antivirus Phone Scam Is Stealing Money And
Many online scams start with an email but you also need to be
cautious when the phone rings. There have been an increased number
of reports recently of phone scammers claiming to be from
Microsoft, or an antivirus company, or some random tech support
facility. These callers will claim their systems have detected
viruses and/or malware on your computer and they can help you with
a lifetime of guaranteed support for just a one-time payment of
$100 or so.
The process typically goes like this:
The scammers first want you to download a remote
access service and grant them access to your PC.
Next the scammers want you to buy and install
antivirus software that's usually counterfeit or just a trial
version that leaves you with non-functioning, useless protection.
They may also recommend the latest Windows operating system, which
is also likely to be counterfeit.
Because the scammers were given unfettered access
to your PC through the remote access service, they may install a
backdoor Trojan — a malicious application that enables them to
steal your passwords, use your system and Internet connection to
send spam, and more.
If you receive a call from someone saying your PC
has been compromised, just hang up the phone. Reputable companies
will not make unsolicited calls about the health of your computer.
Microsoft recommends these do's and don'ts to help
prevent becoming a victim:
Be suspicious of unsolicited calls related to a
security problem, even if the caller claims to represent a
Use up-to-date versions of operating system and
Make sure security updates are installed regularly.
Use strong passwords and change them regularly.
Make sure your firewall is turned on and that
antivirus software is installed and up to date.
Provide personal information, such as credit card
or bank details, to an unsolicited caller.
Go to a website, type anything into a computer,
install software, or follow any other instruction from someone who
calls out of the blue.
