Watch out, there is a new virus going around, that encrypts your files, and then leaves a note. The note says to send $200 to a checking account for the password to decrypt the file.

Get this, MSNBC says that browser flaws are a big cause of getting viruses, and spyware, etc... I wonder which browser they were thinking of...

I shall take it for what it is worth and take note. I delete all such spam mail anyway; this shouldn't appear any differently.
