Know Unsecure Email Attachments Before Opening
The complexity of the threats prevailing in the world of internet do not limit itself to just browsing malware but the malware is getting into your system from every point of interaction from the internet. Email spams and junk mails are experienced everyday by users and these are also one of the main sources of getting viruses into your system. In order to protect your computer you can install different security filters to get rid of the viruses and malware from entering. But not all the threats are recognized by these filters.
How Email Spams Intrude our Systems?
In matters of email the malware comes through attachments. Normally we receive promotion emails offering something really attractive and some users are too much intrigued by such messages to explore them further. These mails are actually spam mails that contain some kind of malicious intrusion to destroy the filters that protect your computer. Such emails are sent by email spammers who use highly sophisticated email blaster software that sends out millions of spam mails every day.
Some organizations even use spammers on private DNS servers to reach out to a wider audience. The ISP servers fail to stop such spam mails because these spammers change their IP addresses every time they sent emails so that they cannot be tracked. So you can do little to protect your computer from spam mail malware automatically. Nowadays the email hosts use techniques that can detect spam as it arrives but there are many that go undetected and your inbox gets loaded everyday through such mails.
