As we near the days of getting closer to seeing the first African American get sworn into office at the inauguration on Jan 20th please be aware as email viruses will be more and more on the rise. I received an email warning about this and it has been verified by snopes otherwise I wouldn’t even be mentioning it here.
Don’t open any emails with the subject line of:
Obama acceptance speech
Amazing speech by Obama
World welcomes Obama’s win
These messages may appear to be from legitimate news sources and will try to trick you into clicking on a link that will lead you to a malicious website, or infected link with a Trojan horse attachment to make attempts to try and steal your logins and passwords.
If you see any email of this sort delete it immediately. I don’t open emails of these types of headlines anyways because they always make me skeptical. I do get emails from Barack Obama’s website from time to time though. Just thought I would mention this as I find it to be very important as I know people will be more and more excited and curious to hear, read, watch Obama’s acceptance speech, be careful of the links you click and to be safe don’t open any emails of this sort, just delete them.
