    Virus Compromise the security of the machine, some hoax to grow vitaus delete some files that are supposedly virus. Just before sending the mail automatically to your friends, you ask if the information is valid, sometimes just a simple reflection in doubt, you can check the information discussed. Check the information via a search engine, you can, for example, type the subject of mail to Google to see if it is a hoax.
