Hi all. Amending a post I made yesterday.
I'm getting a ton of blank emails except for a spam link, which I obviously don't click on. They all have extensions from exotic countries, etc. Most, if not all of them are coming from Yahoo or Gmail addresses. None of these emails ever has anything in the subject line.
Since they're coming via webmail accounts, would it be more likely that the senders' accounts have been hacked by a bot that sends out bad links to all contacts, as opposed to their respective computers being infected by malware?
Any help given would be greatly appreciated, as I'd like to alert everybody who is infected and/or hacked what to do to remedy their situation. I can't find anything on this matter via 'net searching, but it sure is running wild. Does anybody know the name of this hacker/bot/trojan/whatever?
