When you receive an email that is unexpected and of a dubious nature, even if it appears to be from someone you know - DON'T OPEN IT DELETE IT.

If it is from some you know, or appears to be, email them and ask them if they sent you a message and re-send it if it was genuine.

Most importantly, run up to date anti virus software.

Thanks harrigran.

I stupidly lost my tablet a couple of weeks ago and only realised two days ago confused. I might have thought it was connected and been tempted. I know, I know we are warned time and time again but I can do some daft things, especially lately. blush

I am jogging along quite nicely thanks. I am two weeks post-op today. I have a lot of soreness in muscles and where the staples were, but have managed pain with only paracetamol and none in the last four days. I have to see the consultant on Friday, probably where he tells me what stage the cancer was and whether it had spread. Onwards and upwards smile

Thanks for the warning Harrigran. How are you?

I have had an email this morning which is potentially serious. If you receive an email from message-service saying they have removed a virus from invoice MOJU-0939 do not open the attachment, it contains malware. It is aimed at small businesses but somehow they have also managed to acquire private addresses angry
