  6. Use caution when opening email attachments
    Email attachments are a common tool for attackers because forwarding email is so simple. Users often open attachments that appear to come from someone they know or an organization they do business with. Almost any type of file can be attached to an email message, so attackers have more freedom with the types of viruses they can send. If your email program includes an option to automatically download email attachments, DON'T take it. Doing so could immediately expose your computer to any viruses included in the email attachments.

    The “Police Central e-crime Unit” lock screen is a computer virus (Trojan:W32/Reveton), which will display a bogus notification, that pretends to be from the Metropolitan Police and states that your computer has been blocked due to it being involved with the distribution of pornographic material, SPAM and copyrighted content.
    [​IMG]The Police Central e-crime Unit virus will lock you out of your computer and applications, so whenever you’ll try to log on into your Windows operating system or Safe Mode with Networking, it will display instead a lock screen asking you to pay a non-existing fine of £100 in the form of a Ukas or PaySafeCard code within 48 hours.
    Furthermore, to make its alert seem more authentic, this virus also has the ability to access your installed webcam, so that the bogus Police Central e-crime Unit notification shows what is happening in the room.
