Virus-infected email reported to Information Technology

by UofL Today last modified Feb 25, 2010 12:08 PM

Information Technology has received a number of reports regarding computer viruses sent by email to university account holders.

 If you have received the following examples, please delete them immediately:

  • •email from “invitations @” with the subject “Your Friend Invited you to Twitter” including an attachment titled “”
  • •Email from “resume-thanks @” with the subject “Thank You From Google!” including the attachment titled “”
  • •E-card notices from “e-cards @”

Never open zip files you are not expecting to receive.  When you receive a suspicious email like this, forward the note as an attachment (select the "forward as attachment" option from the GroupWise menu) to  to confirm its legitimacy prior to opening an attachment.

Information Technology has submitted samples of these virus-infected emails to Symantec, UofL’s virus protection provider, so that they may create new virus definition files to catch these emails before they reach your inbox.
