If you receive an email that appears to be from Verizon Wireless, don't click on anything. I got a Trojan horse from one yesterday, which opens a backdoor on your computer for all kinds of information theft.
It was a stupid mistake on my part to open the email. Don't open emails when you are distracted. Danger signs I ignored: 1) the return address was not Verizon, 2) why would Verizon send a zip file, when I could go to my online account? 3) why was I stupid enough to click on an exe from an email.
The trojan was released yesterday. Symantec doesn't have anything about it on their site, that I can tell. The AVG site is hopeless for getting answers. Does anyone know of a fix?
