Bogus Virus Warning Being Sent to APS Computer Users

APS employees should contact the Technology Department if they think their computer has a virus or they get a message about a virus.

APS Technology is warning users that an e-mail message or phone call going around about a virus is in fact an attempt to infect computers.

“Some APS employees may have received a message from foreign-sounding individuals informing them that their APS computer is infected with a virus and informing them to download a file to eradicate the virus,” said APS Chief Information Officer Lynn Harris. “The file that is downloaded, of course, contains ‘malware’ or malicious software.”

Harris said that APS employee should never respond to such calls or messages. “If someone thinks they have a virus or gets a message about a virus, they should call the APS Technology Department staff to verify the truthfulness of such calls,” Harris said.
