Protect your computers against malware threat

Information sent from the Garvald Neighbourhood Watch Scheme:

The National Crime Agency are urging computer users to take action against recent malware threats (software sent via email attachments that can infect your Windows computer and used for criminal activities or lock you out of your computer). The NCA has taken temporary control of the communications used to connect with infected computers, but expects only a very limited window of opportunity to ensure you are protected. To protect yourself, check that both your Windows Operating System and your virus protection software are up-to-date and make sure your computer has done a security scan recently, to check for viruses and malware. Read the full story on the National Crime Agency Website.
