There's a malicious worm being spread right now; it masquerades as a message from an isp--- verizon, aol,and others; even from me ("Dear user of Langa.com gateway e-mail server,..." or something similar).
The email usually contains a password-protected Zip file, with instructions on how to open it.
DO NOT OPEN THE FILE!It's not really from me--- or Verizon, or AOL, or whomever. Those "From" addresses and other headers are faked, but very convincingly: the worm is quite clever.
But the file is a trojan designed to infect your system. The worm-writers placed the file in a password-protected file to try to hide from some anti-virus tools.
Don't be fooled: JUST DELETE THE FILE AND THE EMAIL.
