I got done by a the Crypto virus last year.

Mongrel of a thing.

I opened an email, clicked on a link and lost the ability to do anything on my work computer.

Of course the bastard who did it asked me for a ransom. I didn’t pay and subsequently I lost everything that had been stored on my computer.

I’m not going to fall for it again.

It doesn’t stop the mongrels trying.

I’ve had two very clear malware emails in the last week or so.

This is the one that’s been doing the rounds in Canberra and has been getting a fair bit of publicity.

I gather that even the Australian Federal Police have received this email in their email systems.

The police will not email a fine to you….ever. Don’t fall for it.

This morning I got this one.

Can I admit that at the very first moment I actually believed that they had a parcel for me…..but once bitten twice shy.
