    How does this virus affect a Kindle Fire if this email virus is opened?

      We cannot tell, because the malicious JavaScript will check your device for vulnerabilities, and if there is any, will redirect you to a malicious website that can take advantage of it.

      So, it is recommended not to open the attachment.

    I received this email 2 days ago and in my half asleep state opened the attachment on my android phone and then deleted the email, i have since received 2 more deleted without opening. I have Avg virus scan on my phone and its not picking anything up but Im still worried and scared now to log on to online banking, ebay etc. How can i be sure my phone doesn't have a virus? Thanks

    Yes it can infect an IPhone, if there is an exploit in the operating system or an application.

    If you scanned your phone and nothing was detected, we can safely say your phone is ok. Scan your phone weekly and ensure that your antivirus software is updated daily.

    Any ideas how to get rid of it? I have downloaded various anti virus apps (Norton, Sophos and avg) and they don't seen to pick anything up when scanning, did that mean my phone is not infected?

  • April 29, 2013 at 12:09 PM by info

    Yes it can infect an Android phone, if there is an exploit in the operating system or an application.

    Will this virus infect an Android phone?
