If you have received a message from “CNN Alerts” with a subject of “CNN Alerts: My Custom Alerts”.   Do not click on the links.  This is a virus infected email and should be deleted. 
 
If you received such and e-mail and already clicked the links you may have then received a notice from XP Antivirus 2008 stating your computer is infected.  Do not click on anything in the XP Antivirus 2008 window. This is not a valid antivirus program.  Please contact the Help Desk as soon as possible.
 
Please continue to follow common sense best practices related to email. Specifically, we strongly suggest that you NOT click on or open attachments received via unsolicited e-mail as this could expose your computer, and the company, to serious risk.  If you receive a message from an unknown source which includes a weblink or attachment, it is imperative that you not open the attachment or follow the weblink.


Since you brought it back up...

My medical insurance company was hacked and everyone's personal information including medical records were held for ransom (which wasn't paid so they were put up on the dark web). The company sent out an email to be oh so forthcoming to let us know about the situation including a link for further information on how to protect yourself. The helpful information on the web page said, "Do not click links in emails"

Radioactive tissue holders found at Bed, Bath & Beyond reveal hypocrisy of failed national security
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Natural News
January 16, 2012

The Dual Ridge Metal Boutique tissue boxes sold at Bed, Bath & Beyond stores have been discovered to be radioactive. Made with the extremely dangerous material used to blast cancer tumors with radiation — cobalt-60 — they emit gamma rays that are known to cause both cancer and infertility. They were manufactured in India, shipped on a commercial container to New Jersey, and then distributed to Bed, Bath & Beyond stores in 20 states...

From a Massachusetts Better Business Bureau press release this morning:

Just days after millions of customers' email addresses were stolen in one of the largest data breaches in U. S. history, the Better Business Bureau is seeing one of the first Epsilon data breach phishing scams.

The BBB is now seeing emails being sent from a fake 'Chase Bank, ' one of the companies whose data was compromised. Following suit, the email warns that ‘your account’ will be deactivated or deleted if you do not update your profile immediately. The email instructs you to update your account by clicking on the link provided.

Contact the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC works to legally prevent fraudulent business practices in the marketplace. File a complaint with the FTC by calling 1-877-HELP.

 
I got one of those. I was like, people actually fall for this crap? {#Lol}
 No thanks, I'll just keep my money.
