News and Information!

Felt this worth passing along. With Christmas coming up, I can see where this could be a real problem. The newest virus circulating is the UPS/Fed Ex Delivery Failure. If you receive an e-mail from UPS/Fed Ex Service along with a packet number, don't open it! It will say that they were unable to deliver a package sent to you on such-and-such a date. It then asks you to print out the invoice copy Attached. DON'T TRY TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS! Pass this warning on to all your PC operators at work and home. This virus has caused Millions of dollars in damage in the past few days. Snopes confirms that itis real. http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/ups.asp<

This notice came from Hill Air Force Base this morning. I felt it needed to be passed along by any means possible with the holiday season fast approaching!

Also, here are some tips from the emergency preparedness government websites. I'll just put the website here so you can look at what you would like to know more about.

I think anything we can do to better prepare ourselves for a "disaster" is better than doing nothing at all.

Keep your eyes and ears open and let's keep our neighborhood safe!! :)
