How to Avoid Email Malware

Internet securityHow To Avoid Email Malware

Malware can easily be transmitted through email. Malware can hide in images, PDF files and XLS files. That is why it can be hard to see if the message has a virus. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to avoid email malware.

When you open up an email from a colleague or friend, you should make sure that it sounds like something that this person would send. In many cases, malware sends out automated messages from a person's email account. These types of messages may also contain strange grammar or spelling.

Additionally, the message itself may seem strange. For example, if you get a message from a friend's email account with pictures from a vacation and this person did not go on a vacation, then it could be a message sent by the malware.

Messages that are generated by malware may also ask for personal information, such as credit card numbers. They may also ask for money. Avoid responding to these types of messages.
