    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. <br/>You made my Christmas Happy!<br/>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?<br/>I normally do not open attachments. I saw the Amazon name and thought it was something my husband bought. So dumb of me.<br/><br/>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.<br/>I deleted the e-mails (I got two) and the download.<br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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?

  • December 18, 2013 at 6:01 PM by an anonymous user from: Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, United States

    There is an order number in the subject "Amazon Order #ZX1212024"<br/>and in the body "OU6657174" placed on December 9th.<br/><br/>The email address was close to mine. While it wasn't mine, it came to me.<br/><br/>Has my pay pal account be charged for such an order. I will scan<br/>my computer for a virus. Is there anything more I should do?<br/><br/>Shirley

  • December 17, 2013 at 11:32 AM by info

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

  • December 17, 2013 at 11:13 AM by an anonymous user from: Portland, Oregon, United States

    Will this virus or trojan infect a MAC also.

  • December 16, 2013 at 5:34 PM by an anonymous user from: Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States

    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.

    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? <br/>thanks

    Just a note on what to look for in the e-mail:<br/><br/>The "To:" line lists your e-mail, and a string of similar e-mails. Example: J#@earthlink.net JoeSmith, JohnSmith etc. <br/><br/>Don't think group orders are common.<br/><br/>Also Intro used: "Good Day" sounds like it came from the Great White North... <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>Virus *exe looks like higher C code, but I could not decompile to look closer. <br/><br/>Recommend wipe the hard drive and reinstall OS and Applications. Do whatever recover action you have for backup after.
