Trojan Horse Virus From PayPal E-Mail

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

I recently received several e-mails from PayPal saying that my account had been flagged at ramdom and it was necessary to update all my personal information. I clicked on thier “secure link” just to see what info they wanted and my virus protection detected and removed a “trojan horse” virus. Sadly, I didn’t pay too much attention to the details of it. Until today, when I received another “Your Account’s Been Flagged” e-mail from PayPal. When I clicked on the “secure link”, again to see what info they wanted, the same thing happened. My virus protection detected and removed a “trojan horse” virus the was in my “temporary internet files folder” with the file name of Paypal[1]. Just thought I’d pass that along.
