Beware of April 1st ......

While this story has a slightly light-hearted approach, April 1st is an internet day to beware of malicious attempts to fool you while pretending to be a light-hearted joke.

    Beware of the jokes sent to you from unknown sources!

Hi CharleyO,

Yes these days a prime time for misnomers that like to fun-engineer you into some nastiness. Do not click, open or download files BUT after scanning or pre-scanning. Be aware and keep your eyes open.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
