Thanks for the tip on both counts.

 

I don't even click on links in any "business" emails anymore. Just go to the site, then look around.

 

In fack, just today I was wondering why Brian Krebs' "Krebs on Security" has links to his site on his emails. 

 

I mean, I understand "why", but to have a short intro to an article and then a link "Please use the link above to continue reading this posting" seems a might "awkward" for a site dedicated to security.

My business emails are perhaps 250 per account per day, 2 accounts.

 

Security, networking, the newest and greatest whiz bang computer information. Think everyone just expects you to click on the easy least hyperlink to Nirvana.

 

I don’t click on links but, that could be just me, I watch where ther going in reality and who their really coming from.

 

Ex: Yesterday an attachment from a business associate, with a header his name but, Dubai address. 

 

My antivirus popped it for W97M.Downloader, had almost wondered why associates email went into sandbox, until I saw the actions happening.

 

Nothing the matter with a little paranoia, it’s kept my business clean for 51 years of computer work.
