    Let me discuss one of the thing happened to me. I am aware of computer virus and their effects. I know it can harm the system, destroy files and hard disc. But a funny thing happened to me.
    I received a mail from some person explaining about a product. I clicked that link. It got me to a site where it explained about the product. That window i left open. Then after some time i opened my site for updating some details.
    Hurr.... What happened is when i entered the address of my site it redirected to that product site. I was perplexed. I just opened my ftp and to my shock, i saw my sites source code has been altered by that virus site. It just had one line to be redirected. Then i closed that site and changed the source code with the back up i was having. So remember...
    1. To take back up of your site
    2. Dont ever open any mail from strangers...
    Thank you and bye

    Yeah whenever I do some addition on my websites I take the back up and saved that one in my mail, in my computer and also at pen drive. Dont want to take the risk as I have give huge labour for it.
