I opened this email today; I’m wondering if it could possibly be spam, or if the attached Zip file might have a virus payload.

I asked my friend James what he thought. He replied “I think it may be spam. Do you have your own support team?”
I sometimes wish I did have my own support team! It looks like I have my own antivirus product too (Garethjmsaunders Antivirus). Now why didn’t I mention this to my friend Simon last night when he was asking about AV software. Now, I wonder.
