ALERT! False Security Email Warning

An email with a false warning, purportedly from and/or the UCDavis Security Department, has been reported by university email users. The email message warns that your account is subject to deactivation and asks the email recipient to visit a Web site to ensure continued email service. The Web link will seek to download a virus infected file (such as confirmation_sheet.pif) to your computer. This file is infected with a W32.MyTob virus variant and will permit unauthorized remote access to an infected computer. Delete the false email message and do not download this infected file attachment.
