2346 Phish Alert

Monday, April 6. 2009

I have received several emails today, to my AOL id, from unrecognized parties. They all have the same message in the text: "[Blah blah something interesting...] Click on 'Show Images' above for details."

AOL doesn't allow images or links in email unless you give explicit permission.

Of course, I haven't clicked on "Show Images" for those emails. It now has me wondering if one can get worms or viruses just from images embedded in emails. Can they contain executable code?
