Hack threat.

Postby Seahawk » Thu Jan 09, 2020 4:19 am

I've just received a spam e-mail that gives me a threat. But there is nothing going wrong in my PC. So, should I worry?

Just delete it. It's probably a 419 scam or something similar.

If with the e-mail there was no attached file that you haven't neither downloaded nor opened, maybe right because suddenly deleted by your antivirus program, then you can stay quiet. No worries also in case you haven't clicked on any present link in such e-mail message.

Just ignore them, they're just spam. There's nothing useful at all about them and they'll likely infect your PC with viruses, popups or other malware if you click on them.

When it comes to normal street driving, any car is as good as good as any other. Only the racetrack can truly separate the cars' abilities.
