Spam, fram, hoaxes, urban legends and your security

Posted · 1 Comment

Fram is “cutesy, dopey, sappy, rarely really funny, interesting or “awesome” email forwarded to you by someone you know.” Because fram APPEARS to come from someone you know and trust, your innate skepticism and self-defenses are automatically lowered. You are therefore far more likely to click on a web link or open an attachment file that may contain a virus, trojan or malware.
