IM and Malware


There are alot of great uses for IM and folks love to use it. But care needs to be taken when clicking on links. We have received several reports of suspicious links being received which upon further analysis are really links to malware. Make sure you know what your clicking on, even if the link comes from someone that you know. Malware can send out links to itself to everyone in the person's buddy list. Take care when you feel the need to click....you might get more than you bargained for.


All has been very quiet so far for this shift, but stay tuned for further updates.
