A new virus, Bagle-J, sends out official-looking electronic mail to UCSD users from addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and others, including local departmental addresses.
The messages sound official. They may ask you to follow "attached instructions", for example, or may imply that your email account has been suspended, and tell you to read an attached problem description.
Do not open these attachments. If you open such an attachment, your computer may become infected with this virus. Information about this virus is available at http://www.sophos.com/virusinfo/analyses/w32baglej.html
If you receive an attachment and are unsure about it, we strongly recommend you contact the sender to verify it before opening.
If you cannot determine the sender or have questions about an e-mail message that you have received, you may consult email@example.com or call ACS/Network Operations at 858-534-1857.
