Did all your email contacts just get an email from you urging them to go to a Canadian website to purchase cheap Viagra? If your email was hijacked and used to spam your contact list, it’s your responsibility to quickly send a follow-up email with an apology and a notification about the virus, lest some poor, unknowing employee clicks the link and gets infected himself. You may be ripping your hair out trying to get your computer fixed, but warning your contacts is an essential part of the cleaning up process.
