Alright so from the last 4-5 days iam continously getting email trying to scam or hack my computer therfore writing this thread to spread the word of awarness for those who needed.  Also it would be great if someone can disscuss the counter steps for these:

Ok so it started with email trying to sell miners and rip me off:


When I asked for their websit this is what the scammer told me:



Now day before I got an email confirming a payment from bidpay or whatever and asking me to check (download) the receipt in attachment, there was the catch as I was not expecting any payments and obviously no where from bidpay when I downloaded the file and check on virus total it was a trojan32:



And this morning I received an email saying  an unauthorized access has been blocked and asking me to click on a link and proceed to change my password. The catch was iam a yahoo user and the mail was from google support lol:

I'll address the phishing here since nobody else is.

I'll use microsoft.com as an example here. If somebody@microsft.com sends you an email it will tell you in the headers of that email. Scammers setup email addresses, ie scam@yahoo.com & set the name to somebody@microsoft.com.
In your email it shows up from the microsoft address, if your suspicious though, you can click using gmail as an example "view original", this shows the real address it came from, not what the scammer named it.

Less intelligent scammers will use addresses like paypalverify@something.com, or some shit like that.

Hope that helps...

I got the exact same Gmail email warning on a none Gmail hosted account, So I knew something was a little off about it. I opened it and it tried to get me to download a plugin for google, of course I did not.

Ditto! ! It was asking the same to download a plugin which even I didn't do but I really want someone to check the plugin as whst it is a virus keylogger or trojan???
Ism jot much of a tester so I can't do it on my own.

Escrow I sent it your way, I think its someone data mining the forum for emails. Then sending that message E. have you publicly posted your email on the forum before?
