There is an email circulating that appears to come from firstname.lastname@example.org which contains a virus – supposedly the Netsky worm. The email looks like this:
DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT. DELETE THE EMAIL IMMEDIATELY. This is not a legitimate email from IKEA – it is an email containing a dangerous worm known as Netsky.

According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) – a government safety commission in the US, IKEA has issued a voluntary recall of about 670,000 Iris and Alvine roman blinds after a 1-year-old child from Greenwich, Connecticut became entangled in the cord and was strangled.
This recall involves all sizes of IRIS and ALVINE Roman Blinds in white. The blinds have a sewn-in label at the top edge of the blind with the IKEA logotype, article name (IRIS or ALVINE), 5-digit supplier number 19799 or 21369, four digit date stamp (YYWW) and the words “Made in India”. On the bottom edge of the blind there is a sewn-in orange/white safety warning label. The blinds are made from 100% cotton. IKEA stores nationwide from July 2005 through June 2008 for between $7 and $30.
Consumers should stop using the blinds and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund. For additional information, contact IKEA at 888-966-4532 or visit www.ikea-usa.com.
