    They spell it Ammazon /// so it has an extra M in the name of Amazon. ~

    People are so gullible and excise no caution in opening any emails. ~

    Thank you so much for answering my questions. I have been so worried about this virus. I am happy the little ChromeBook was not affected.
    You made my Christmas Happy!
    TK ~

    Your husband is right. The attachment is a virus or Trojan horse that only affects the Windows operating systems. Your Chromebook runs on the Chromebook operating system, which is Linux-based.

    Therefore, this virus or Trojan will not affect you. ~

    I am very concerned since I downloaded and opened the attachment. I am using a Chrome Book. Do the viruses affect the Chrome Book?
    I normally do not open attachments. I saw the Amazon name and thought it was something my husband bought. So dumb of me.

    Please tell me if I have the Trojan Horse or other viruses. My husband said there are no virus scan programs to run on Chrome Book.
    I deleted the e-mails (I got two) and the download.

    I changed my e-mail password and Facebook password. Should I throw this Chrome Book away? I don't want to change my e-mail address. My husband says we are safe since those viruses and Trojan Horse are written for window users, and Chrome Book is not based on windows.

    Please advise what to do if you downloaded this stuff on Chrome Book. Thanks! TK ~

    I got this email too after placing an order at Amazon.com. They really need to warn customers on their site or send a warning of the bogus email to their customers. I guess now you have to research everything before you open any emails. thanks for the info. ~

    I was wise enough to catch it. I did not place any orders on the day it mentioned, am not waiting for any orders, and I no longer associate that email address from my account. Also, I did a "who is" of the IP address (OrderReportluuv .com), and it is still available.Anyone who gets one should forward to stop-spoofing@amazon.com per the Amazon website, which I did. ~

    I fell victim... nothing showed when we ran our antivirus software. ~

    Can this virus/trojan infect a Windows Mobile Phone with a Windows 8 OS? If so, how can it be located and removed? ~


  • Anonymous: 9 months, 0 week ago

    There is an order number in the subject "Amazon Order #ZX1212024"
    and in the body "OU6657174" placed on December 9th.

    The email address was close to mine. While it wasn't mine, it came to me.

    Has my pay pal account be charged for such an order. I will scan
    my computer for a virus. Is there anything more I should do?

    Shirley ~


  • info: 9 months, 1 week ago

    This virus or Trojan only affects computer running the Windows operating system. ~


  • Anonymous: 9 months, 1 week ago

    Will this virus or trojan infect a MAC also. ~


  • Anonymous: 9 months, 1 week ago

    I have been getting versions of this virus message. My virus checker (Avast) flags them. I have not opened any of them, but they keep coming. Amazon needs to address this problem aggressively. Amazon needs to fix this promptly. ~


  • Anonymous: 9 months, 1 week ago

    I clicked on the attachment and downloaded it. I didn't open it however. After reading this I promptly deleted it from my computer. Am I safe from the Trojan horse, or could I have already been infected?
    thanks ~

    Just a note on what to look for in the e-mail:

    The "To:" line lists your e-mail, and a string of similar e-mails. Example: J###@earthlink.net JoeSmith, JohnSmith etc.

    Don't think group orders are common.

    Also Intro used: "Good Day" sounds like it came from the Great White North...

    If this attachment runs, it will try to kill antivirus by disabling it and prevents a virus scan. Then if you try to reinstall AV, the install will most likely fail too. Blue Screen of death also.

    Virus *exe looks like higher C code, but I could not decompile to look closer.

    Recommend wipe the hard drive and reinstall OS and Applications. Do whatever recover action you have for backup after. ~
