I was referred to this site via the Hijackthis site. I had some email contact from a possible suspicious source that wanted some pics of some items I have for sale. Is there anyway a scammer could gain access to my computer thru the submission of photo files? Wanted someone to analyze the log from Hijackthis if that would be of any benefit.
