Ransomwear... ALMOST... got me. Through an email.
« on: Tue May 16, 2017 - 07:15:38 »
An email came that almost sounded legit. I clicked on the email to get it to
open and the what made me pause was the phrase ... What you asked about.

It was referring to non-surgical facelifts... for jowls and double chins and the like....(You men will not understand the interest in this but the women will)  I did not click to actually open it for info... but went to an actual search for the company or procedure by name in a search bar.

It almost seemed legit... had a page full of links to click on but before I could really think about it.. Avast... my virus protector (free edition)  popped up with they have me covered on many ransomwares....

So I went back to my email ... tossed it in spam and permanently deleted it.

I do not open any that are very strange looking , ever, but this simply said U l t h e r a p y.. (all one word)( Dont want to put it all together just in case)

It just is getting to be no fun having to watch your back.

I am just the most illiterate when it comes to computer stuff....

Some pretty serious threats currently circulating out there. The WannaCry virus/ransomware has been hitting up corporations in over 150 countries, mostly infecting systems through phishing emails much like yours.


If something ever manages to get through your security suite, pull the plug on your computer or power it down by holding down the power button, Don't click anything!!!!
