    New virus

    I just received what seems to be an Android virus, I received an email with no recipient with an attachment and said to be important info from some doctor, I didn't think it would be dangerous since there are no Android Viruses. But when I clicked show attachment it said downlOading, phone automatically unmounted the sd card, foreclosed all apps then froze, I restarted my phone and everything keeps foreclosing now. I have an HTC thunderbolt runNing Eaton ROM. BEEN running this ROM for a while without problems until I received this email.

    This thread has been moved to the General Discussions Forum.
    If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
    If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
    If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.

    In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.

    While being a PIA, wouldn't doing a factory reset and deleting that email resolve this problem?
