I wanted to pass this on to ATS membership, it seems to be a pretty good cover for a email worm and or virus.

I wanted everyone here to be alert for this electronic bug.
Virus arrives in e-mail allegedly sent by FBI.

The FBI is warning the public about malicious e-mails designed to appear as if they were generated by the law enforcement agency.

In a statement released late Tuesday, the FBI detailed the threat, which attempts to lure e-mail users into opening an attachment containing a computer virus.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

It looks now that these cyber criminals are getting more clever in how they spread the virus by using the FBI as a cover for spreading bugs.

If the FBI emailed me, yes I more that likely would open the file to see what they wanted, so I guess everyone needs to take a closer look at the sender before opening this email.

If the FBI emailed me, I would definitely not open it, the FBI would not send emails to people, they would just knock on your door.
