Spam and Virus Guidelines :
- Our spam filter will not accept an email with executable file attachments, however to check the contents of a zip file meens our mail server filter has to unzip the zip file and check to see if there are executable files inside. This takes a lot of system resorces and we are currently not doing it. Therefore if you receive an email with a zip file attachment, do not open it unless you are sure you know who it is from. It could be a virus. It can take 24hrs for our filter to learn the spam or virus pattern before it is blocked so you need to be conscientious about upgrading your virus protection programme and be careful of any emails received from people you don't know, or have strange messages or subject lines.
We suggest that you put into use an 'Anti-Virus policy'
- No downloading executables and documents directly from the internet.
- Do not open unsolicited executables/documents/spreadsheets. Word and excel files can harbour macro viruses.
- Do not automatically forward any email virus warnings, chain letters etc. Use Google to confirm whether they are genuine or not. Most are hoaxes.
Download files only from trusted sites When you download a file from a Web site, be sure you know the source! You should download only files that are from known, well-established companies.
Turn on the security features in the Microsoft Windows Security Center, and keep your computer updated. Use the following:
- Internet firewall
- Antispyware software
- Antivirus software
Back up your data regularly
Make regular backups of important work and data, and check that the backups were successful. You should also find a safe place to store your back-ups, perhaps even off-site in case of fire.
