|موضوع: HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ADDRESS BOOK! الأربعاء 22 أغسطس 2012, 10:39 am|| |
This makes sense and it works:
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ADDRESS BOOK!
Here is a computer trick that's ingenious in its simplicity. As you may know, when/if a worm virus gets into your computer it heads straight for your email address book, and sends itself to everyone in there, thus infecting
all your friends and associates. This trick won't keep the virus from getting into
your computer, but it will stop it from using your address book to spread further, and it will alert you to the fact that the worm has gotten into your
Here's what to do:
First, open your address book and click on "new
contact," just as you would do if you were adding a
new friend to your list of email addresses.
In the window where you would type your friend's
first name, type in "A".
For the screen name or email address, type
Now, here's what you've done and why it works:
The "name" "A" will be placed at the top of your
address book as entry#1.
This will be where the worm will start in an effort
to send itself to all your friends.
But, when it tries to send itself to
http://us.mc1103.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=AAAAAAA@AAA.AAA, it will be undeliverable because of
the phony email address you entered. If the first
attempt fails (which it will because of the phony
address), the worm goes no further and your friends
will not be infected.
Here's the second great advantage of this method:
If an email cannot be delivered, you will be
notified of this in your In Box almost immediately.
Hence, if you ever get an email telling you that an
email addressed to http://us.mc1103.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=AAAAAAA@AAA.AAAA could not be
delivered, you know right away that you have the
worm virus in your system. You can then take steps
to get rid of it!
Simple yet effective protection!
If everybody you know does this then you need not
ever worry about opening mail from friends.
So pass this on to all your friends
