Re: Fake email from American Airlines
I got one of these and tried to open the zip file but couldn't. Does that mean I now have a virus?

It's certainly possible! If you use Windows you should always have an up to date antivirus program to protect you. If you use a Mac, you don't have to worry about it.

Re: Fake email from American Airlines
You opened the zip file in an unsolicited email?  Congratulations! Look under your pillow in the morning - there will be airline tickets to Acapulco.  No - actually most of these are duds.  I have a virtual machine that I routinely self-infect to keep my claws sharpened for quick removal of different types of malware and many of these exe's going around are inert.  My guess is that the attachments are rendered impotent by someone's protection before they get to me. The ones where the email presents a web link in hopes that a gullible clicker falls for the bait... those are deadly so try to contain your curiosity or you will likely land on a page where a malware tripwire lays in wait.  Then you need to decide who to pay.

Dead giveaway - 5th grade grammar is always the tip-off! I swear if these scammers ever buy a $19 grammar checker, we're all in big trouble.
