Hello, I've received a dodgy email from a relative lately and, in fact, this same email keeps arriving every day. It is quite clear that it can possibly contain a virus. Can someone tell me if I exposed myself to the virus please: - When the email came, I opened it - Hotmail itself said: 'This message has been blocked for your safety' Open message - I clicked on Open message and viewed the email. It asks the recipient to click on the attachment to view further details. Again Hotmail alerted me: 'Attachments, pictures and links in this message have been blocked for your safety' Show content. Obviously I didn't click on Show content.
I'm just worried because I did click on Open message and viewed the email. How do I know I'm safe? What's the best thing to do now?
Thanks Peter. Yes I have been deleting this same email now. Well if I blacklist the sender, I won't get emails from him anymore, isn't that right? Where do I download Mailwasher from? (please bear with me!) I have AVG a/v installed. I need to run a few scans anyway. Do you think I exposed myself to any danger by just opening the message? How do I know I picked up a virus? Thanks P
