Beth, DO NOT follow through with this. This is just another in a series of spammers trying to gather your information, and will ultimately allow them access to your account.

This is certainly a fraud, worse than spam, it's a scam to steal your ID. There is no such thing as an Exede virus. It fits the pattern of scams that try to scare you into immediately giving your login and password so they can use it for nefarious purposes.  Don't reply to them. Report it to Exede.

Beth, these lovely folks are all correct, that email is definitely not from us. Would you please forward that email to me at exedelistens@viasat.com so we can investigate? Thanks.
