DOJ Warns of E-Mail Hoax

The U.S. Justice Department is warning about spam e-mail messages that claim the recipient is the subject of a DOJ complaint.

The e-mails say a case has been filed against the recipients or their businesses by a Mr. Henry Stewart and include an attachment purporting to be a copy of the complaint.

A press release says double clicking on the attachment could launch malicious software such as viruses and Trojan horse programs. The e-mail should be deleted.
