Since I just dodged this bullet, I thought I should bring it up here.

There's a new (well not new, but now being exploited) way of sneaking malware onto a computer that bypasses the anti-virus software.
The hackers are imbedding the malware inside digital pictures and when you click on the picture to open it, the browser sets off a chain of events that loads and executes the malware. It will get a grip on the PC before the anti-virus can even react.

I just received an e-mail from my own e-mail account (the red flag for me and a pox on my ISP for even allowing it to be delivered to start with) with a simple picture of a roasted turkey. I didn't touch the picture and immediately deleted the email.

So, the take away is if you get an e-mail with a picture in it that encourages you to click on the image - DON'T DO IT. Especially if the sender is unrecognized or your own account.

Myron, yeah I know. I guess it's job security for us, huh?
