What is Phishing?

If you have received an email from any financial institution or companies such as eBay requesting your account information through email.
You have been Phished!

If you have an account with any business regarding finances, they already have your personal information and will never request the information by email or online. Someone is trying to get your information to steal your money, credit or your identity. If you have a question about this contact the organization that you supposedly received the email from before doing anything. You will probably find out that the email is a scam.

For more information regarding Phishing, check out this site:

From time to time an email comes out claiming to have a fix for a specific virus attached to it.
These warnings sometimes contain the following footer:

*-* AntiVirus: Found to be clean
*-* "WCNET" Anti-Virus Service
*-* http://www.wcnet.org

WCNet will never add a signature at the bottom of any email that goes through our server!

No legitimate company (WCNet, Microsoft, Norton, McAfee, etc)
will ever send you a virus or worm fix as an attachment!

If you want an update from Microsoft go to the link above.
If you want virus protection updates, go to one of the links listed below.
NEVER open attachments that claim to be Virus or Worm fixes!
