Admission is free and the series is open to all! We’ll be discussing the basics of computer networking and setting up a small wireless network during the seminar. I hope to see you there!

No, Don’t Open That Attachment!

So you’ve received an email like this one. You weren’t in New York and you couldn’t have received a ticket. So all you have to do is click on the attachment and contest the ticket – not so fast!

That attachment is a virus! Be very careful when opening any attachments in your email. If you’re not expecting an attachment, don’t open it!

This type of email has become a favorite tool for hackers who are trying to infect your computer and eventually steal your personal info.
