Security Alert

Watch out. It’s virus season and Mimail is circulating again.

Virus tries to con PayPal users
Security experts are warning e-mail users about a virus which tries to fool people into giving away bank details.
Mimail.J targets customers of web payment system PayPal, and is the latest “phishing” scam, which tries to dupe users of financial services.

The worm travels as an attachment to a convincing e-mail, but once opened copies itself to other addresses.

Experts warn that the Windows virus is set to spread more rapidly and say users should ignore and delete it. [BBC]
