October is Cybersecurity Month – Cybersecurity Tip #3

Do not open email attachments from unknown sources.  One of the easiest ways to get a virus is to open an email attachment.  It’s best to even use caution when the email comes from a friend or family, because they may have gotten a virus on their computer that is then sending it to recipients in that person’s address book.
