(June 06, 2014) The Northumberland County Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts wants to warn the public about a computer virus that comes in an email falsely claiming to be about a court case. The Prothonotary/Clerk of Courts has learned the email alerts recipients about an upcoming court case; however, the email is a scam, and opening any attachment or clicking on any link in the message triggers a malicious program that infects the recipient’s computer. The email is not from the courts nor is it about a court case.
