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 – Ransomware Senders Demand Money to "Fix" Files
One of the latest ways for cybercriminals to try and get money
from you involves infecting your computer with a virus that
encrypts your valuable files (making these files unusable) then
demanding a payment to decrypt them. This type of virus, called
ransomware, can be installed on your computer if you open an
attachment from a malicious sender.
A recent version of ransomware, called CryptoLocker, is often
distributed via email messages that appear to come from reputable
organizations or companies such as the Better Business Bureau,
FedEx, and UPS. CryptoLocker can also be installed along with
infected downloaded software.
Security experts warn to NEVER PAY THE RANSOM; you'll lose your
money and probably get nothing in return. If you do fall prey to
ransomware, a number of legitimate security vendors offer
solutions for unlocking machines. Talk to a local computer
technician you trust for more information.
Of course, the best solution is to not become a victim of
ransomware in the first place. Be extremely wary of email
attachments, even if they appear to be sent by someone you know.
(Viruses are often sent via one person's email to others on their
contact list.) Be particularly cautious about attachments other
than typical office documents, especially ZIP or EXE files.
Finally, be sure to have up-to-date commercial antivirus software
active at all times.
