Is Your Computer Sending Out Viruses
Without Your Knowing It?
Use Virus Software and Keep It Up To Date!

Did you know that your computer can send out viruses without your knowing it? There are evil computer programs created only to plant themselves on your computer and send themselves as e-mails to everyone in your email address book, to people you have received e-mails from recently, or people you have written recently. Sometimes the programs just merely replicate and cause no real harm; often, however, they secretly destroy data on your computer!

If you are a nonprofit organization, your credibility can be adversely affected if users can trace a virus they have received back to you, or if you lose valuable donor or volunteer information, accounting data, etc. because of a virus attack.

You have the means to make sure your computers are not spreading viruses and aren't susceptible to attacks! It's easy:

And in case you haven't guessed: this newsletter topic was prompted by my receiving 12 attempted attacks in one day, including one that originated from the computer of a friend of my mom's (who had no idea what her computer was up to without her...).
