**Note that some non-Muslims are intentionally spreading viruses by making fake announcements about â€˜Eidul Fitrâ€”as soon as you open the web page your computer will be attacked.
Do not open Eid announcement from www.patriceanderson.com. Patrice Anderson appears to be from Houston, TX and runs a website that shows some expertise with web development, including apparently some knowledge of security which she is using to compromise the computers of Muslims in contravention of the law. (â€œpatrice.anderson: front-end web developer, sometimes designer and perpetual learner.â€) Will not give the live link to the page with the virus here.
We have notified authorities and are awaiting their response to this malicious act by Patrice Anderson.
