Technology Advances Today... Obsolete Tomorrow
Technology advances extremely fast. A computer you bought
6 months ago is already obsolete as far as
technology is concerned. And the same with many software
programs. That's why it is important to update them
often and regularly.
Spammer's are always one step ahead of technology it
seems. For every update software companies make in the
effort to combat Junk Mail (SPAM), the Spammer's are
already working on ways to get around it. One common method used by
Spammer's is called "masking". They use other
people's email addresses to make it appear as though it is
coming from them or even your own email address.
General Information on Junk Mail (SPAM)
Sad, but true... some people don't use Anti-Virus
Protection or regularly update the software as
needed. In some cases, your friend or family
member may have a "worm virus" that collects
all of the email addresses in their address book on
their computer and sends out emails that appear to
be from them. If you're using Anti-virus software
and get an email from them that contains a
virus, do them a favor and let them know
that their computer may be infected.
