email dangerous, or just attatchments?
anyone know if viruses and other malware like spyware, worms, and trojan horses are able to be spread by just email alone, or would they have to be included in an attatchment that one would have to open or save to their computer? i was just wondering because everyone always forwards all these "cute" or "funny" emails around, and i was wondering if it was safe for me to open them. i'm thinking that emails are only capable of spreading such malware in the attatchments, but i haven't been able to find any reliable info yet.
