    Thumbs down WARNING- CA FFs hit with computer virus this weekend.

    I dont have all of the details yet, but
    someone hacked in to the computer of the
    California Professional Firefighters (CPF)
    office this weekend. People from different cities
    and counties are getting slammed with about
    60+ virus emails. Thier website seems to be
    down.

    I just got the file sent to me and it is about
    30kb. The file has the letters CPF in it.
    Please DO NOT open it and take the typical
    virus pre-cautions.

    I am sure there will be more to follow...

    Thanks for the information!

    Default Update-

    Per the CPF- the virus hit about 30,000 people. They
    found the source and fixing it right now.

    I was hoping one of the emails didnt jump out of
    our state and hit anyone else. Ofcourse that is
    impossible, but just wanted to let you guys/gals
    know...Bou
