How do I validate an email virus warning I just got?

Jump to solution

Is the attached warning valid?. Attachment is the text from the email.   I've spent over an hour attempting to communicate with McAfee to validate this email virus warning I just got.

Hi,

I can't view the atttachment contents, however given the key words the following links may well be relevant:

Olympic Torch Hoax

Osama Hanged Hoax

Ifi you receive a mail which has details of a possible virus attack it's always good to check it against our hoax page and threat library to get further information, rather than forwarding it to all your contacts as these e-mails generally ask you do. Also, as you rightly did, you can always come here to get an opinion from McAfee Labs.

Cheers,

Sam
