The damage done / or not


I receive emails on a regular basis that tell of viruses that can physically damage your computer. I did a few google searches and came up with alot of differing opinions, so I thought I would come here.

I have ran McAfee on all my computers for years, and feel "pretty safe", but I know just enough about computers and viruses to be dangerous.

Please take a minute to let me know if these emails are something that we should all pay attention to. ( I do know that if I don't open the attachment in an email, the program can't run, and I should be safe, right?) Also, I looked at all the categories on this site, and I hope I am posted in the right room...if not, Sorry.

Thanks in advance,

Ken there ANY viruses that have been identified as "physically destructive", either email based or not?

Yes you should be careful of opening e-mails that you are not expecting,just opening an e-mail can infect you.
As for are there any "physically destructive" virus,the answer is yes.
