Over the last few weeks I've been getting e-mails to my e-mail address, not spam, and the subject matter is blank. Usually, I avoid things like this, but being a tech for 15 yrs., my curiosity got the best of me, because I new these people.When I opened the e-mails, each had no written info from sender..just a link !
The link's have a "foreign" country code in them, and php or js or both are in the link. I never click on these links. Next day I get an e-mail from AOL, telling me there is suspicious activity on my account. I ran AVG antivirus, and MalwareBytes...nothing !Are these countrys trying to put spyware, malware, worms, on my p.c., so they can take control of it. It stopped after I changed my password, but today I got 2 e-mails on my optimum acct., a phony from "Chase Online banking", and "Bank of America", telling me to clink on link below, and update my acct., before they suspend it...both went to abuse@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Can these php and java script links be used for the purposes I mentioned..
