4.  How can you tell when email attachments are safe. 

With all the sophisticated methods that hackers hold up their sleeve, it may seem impossible to distinguish between suspicious emails and legitimate messages. However, there is actually an easy way to tell if email attachments are safe that works the vast majority of the time. You can tell if an email attachment is safe by assessing the file extension.

A file extension is the three letters that follow the period at the end of the file name. Microsoft has classified several types of dangerous extensions; however, only a few are considered safe. These are GIF, JPG or JPEG, TIF or TIFF, MPG or MPEG, MP3 and WAV. These extensions represent different file types and are the formats that the majority of internet users tend to send as email attachments.

If you receive an email, even if it is from a friend or a bank, that does not have one of the file extensions listed above after the file name and subsequent period, you should never open the attachment unless you know for certain that it is legitimate. Other file extensions that are commonly sent as email attachments such as DOC, XLS and TXT, which represent text documents and Excel files, can be infected with the worst computer viruses. However, many users send these types of documents for work-related reasons, and if you know the sender and you are expecting the file or know what it's about, these attachments should be safe to open as well.

Finally, you should be exceptionally wary of files with double extensions, such as image.gif.exe. The only extension that matters is the last one. In the example above, EXE represents an executable file that will automatically run software upon download. Files with double extensions are almost always deceptive and malicious in intent.
