Spam and computer viruses continue to be a huge problem for computer users of all levels. We take a strong stand against spam at Realm-Net Hosting. Not only is it annoying, but the bulk of spam messages are offensive, unintelligible and a complete waste of Internet bandwidth and space in my InBox. In the opinion of many security experts, spam and computer viruses are also linked in two ways:

  • Some viruses spread by sending themselves to people on your address book via email with spoofed mail-from information in the email header.
  • Some viruses sole purpose is to turn your PC into a spam zombie that enables a spammer to magnify the broadcast of their junk email and further obfuscate its origin.

For these reasons, remember these important tips:

  • Use Anti-Virus software and keep it up to date!
  • Do not open any email attachments from untrusted sources.
  • Major companies, such as Microsoft never send out updates via email. Never download or install any software that claims to be an update from a software company.
  • Never open email attachments that end in .pif, .scr, .bat, or .exe. These are all files that can execute code on your computer and introduce a virus.
