Virus Hoaxes Print

This page is considered the industry standard information source for new virus hoaxes and false alerts.

Hoax warnings are typically scare alerts started by malicious people - and passed on by innocent users who think they are helping the community by spreading the warning.

 

Do not forward hoax messages.

 

We've seen cases where e-mail systems have collapsed after dozens of users forwarded a false alert to everybody in the company.

 

Corporate users are ENCOURAGED to get rid of the hoax problem by simply setting a strict company guideline: End users must not forward virus alarms. Ever. It's not the job of an end user anyway. If such message is received, end users should forward it to their own IT department or support staff in the first instance, but not to anyone else.
