Beware of Microsoft Attachments from strangers (and friends)


A few days ago Microsoft disclosed a flaw in their Microsoft Office suite of programs (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) that allowed hackers to embed a malware program known as a “trojan horse” providing them access to sensitive security information. Please read more about this here. In the meantime, steps you can take to protect yourself are to run the Microsoft Office update to get the “patch” for this flaw, and to only click on Microsoft (Word, Excel, etc.) attachments from people you know and are expecting. If you are unsure, check with the sender. Microsoft had promised an update 11 April 2017 but as of yet it has not reached China…so please keep checking. Thank you.

Workshops – yummy treats – games!  Have fun, and then the next day, go to the PTA Spring Fun Day!

Please make sure you speak with any activity leaders who might be affected by this. Sometimes we try to put performers first so that they can get out quickly to their other commitments.
