    Hey all

    I'm more than a bit late with this, but I just picked up a notice from my ISP about the MyTob worm. As I've also seen reports of this many times at work this week, I thought I should maybe post it .

    We got one of these last week with this heading

    I really had to laugh, and think 'WTF, you're sending me this by email to tell me my account is suspended?' but then I realised that a lot of users would really fall for this and panic click the attachment.:x

    They do, and have been. I posted this for those that get aunties, brothers, grannies etc calling you panicking that their PC is about to explode.

    Public Service Announcement, that's all :)
