Hi guys,

 

I know you are brillant at  anti malware for  Windows and other OS's, so I wanted to ask you about Chromebook.

 

One of my friends is getting a lot of spam, and I don't know if it is possible to check the Chromebook, or indeed if ANYTHING is out there to diagnose the thing.

 

By their schpeil it should be difficult to get a virus -  but its anti-Malware generally I'm interested in her checking.

 

Anyone got some hard useful info?

 

Thank you

Hi YusufAlizo,

 

Yes. 

 

Whilst I guess it is a spoofed address (I have no details yet) I wanted to make sure there was no Malware actively working to 'request spam' by giving out her IP or email address.  Trouble is I know nothing about Chromebooks...   :mellow:

Everybody gets spam. Just ignore it  and make sure you mark it as spam in your email settings. She most likely registered on a fishy website or something. Scan your computer with malwarebytes just in case. But she should be fine.
