    Had a message from my daughter today warning of an email address not to be accessed.
    dr3am_rock@hotmail.com Do Not Click this link
    apparently he pirates your computor and hacks into adress systemthen hacks into your contacts computers.
    I do not know if this is a real threat or a spoof neither does my daughter.

    Hoax

    These supposed circular passit on warnings are actually meant to waste time and cause unrest. It's highly unlikely you'd ever receive a warning about a real possible virus.


    However be carefull posting any links in case

    Regards
