Beginning yesterday, a potentially harmful virus is being spread via
email spoof attacks. These emails appear to be from official
polarhome.com sources as staff, management etc, due to the "spoofing" of
email addresses. The content in the body of the email describes account
suspension or other random texts, however, in all cases, there is a
password protected zip file attachment with a virus inside. Please do
not open the attached zip file. Delete the email at once.  

We also recommend that you update your virus definitions for your virus
software as soon as possible and ensure you keep them updated. If you do
not have anti virus software this would be an excellent time to begin
using it. There are a few free programs for personal use available
including AVG (http://www.grisoft.com/) and AntiVir

All of polarhome.com's mail services scan and remove viruses. If you

virus emails where blocked as soon as the virus signature was known.
