Spammers - the folks who sent you email or text messages you didn't know you needed - are becoming more and more sophisticated. That "invoice" in broken english from a vendor you don't remember? It could be a virus. Never click a link in an email or download a file without confirming that it was sent from a trusted source and the link or file is (at least mostly) safe.
