I got an email today at work, and I DID NOT click the link. It raised warning flags, so I did some digging. It's malware, and with the Inauguration right around the corner, I wanted to warn my fellow users here DO NOT CLICK ANYTHING in these links. It's nasty malware.
I have a severe hate of this crap. The wife had her comp get tagged with malware a few days ago, don't even know how, but it took me many hours to clean her system out.
Hey mods, if this is in the wrong forum, or and I don't think this is a violation cause I disabled the links, I'm jsut trying to warn folks.
