    Urgent



    Just got that in my mail, do I dare to open the zip?

    I won't get infected as long as I don't click on the exe in the zip file right?

    Is it safe to download the zip?

    Also get a LOT of them with attachments saying to open it for whatever reason...

    Have you done it yet? I'll probably download it on my school comp and see what it is:

    I got that one too, but the attachment was screwed up.

    I've had it as well, not opened it though. Somebody should do it and see what it contains so I don't have to.

    What's really annoying is that no-one's replied yet.

    I get that one a lot too. Anyone else see a pattern?


    Cue conspiracy theories. We haven't had one in a while.
