Police warn of computer virus

Bermuda Police Service is warning the public about a computer virus that has disrupted their systems.

The virus is spread via a spam e-mail message, entitled “Your documen”.

This contains a zip file that, if opened, will replicate the email and send it to every contact in the recipients directory.

A spokeswoman for the BPS said that the email had also been reported at other locations outside of the police service.

She said: “If you receive this e-mail, do not open the attachment and delete as soon as possible.”
