No Love Bug Bites This Valentine?

14th February 2005 - intY , which provides email anti virus and spam protection services to 3000-plus UK small business customers, forecasts that the Love Bug computer virus is unlikely to cause turmoil this year, but says small businesses shouldn’t drop their guard.

Based on its round the clock monitoring of viruses and spam targeting small businesses emailboxes, Inty confirmed that there has been no recorded incidence of Love Bug for three months. This makes it likely that Valentines Day 2005 may be the first year of no new Love Bug incidences.

Mark Herbert, CEO and founder, intY said: “While it looks like the passion has gone out of Love Bug, small businesses shouldn’t be complacent. We’re advising our clients to expect an influx of Valentine’s Day spam and be wary of any attachment that claims to be a Valentine’s Day greeting. Virus writers are increasingly relying on social engineering to get around anti-virus defences. So thinking twice before blithely clicking on an attachment could ensure small businesses don’t suffer more than just broken hearts this February 14th”.

intY MailDefender is a managed service which filters the email traffic of small business customers for computer viruses, spam and other malware.
