I have received a spoofed e-mail yesterday indicating it came from one of my contacts. The e-mail only contained a link (see below), and if you click on the link you will be redirected to a malicious website with a fake anti-virus. This malicious website displayed a false or fake report of viruses and spyware, and asked if I wanted to download an anti-virus to remove the viruses it had detected.
Please continue reading below.
This is the link in the e-mail message:
This is the malicious website that you will be redirected to:
DO NOT download and install any software from this website (detectorsafetyoptimizer.in).
Please tell your family and friends about this fake anti-virus.
