New SPAM tactic!

Fri Mar 31, 2017 11:00 am

Looks like the Spammers are getting smarter!
I have been getting a lot more Crap-mail lately with a bogus address.
When I try to mark them as JUNK in OUTLOOK I get a pop up window saying that the e-mail or domain name is not valid and all I can do is delete that mail. I can't block future crap-mail from them!

As far as Outlook is concerned, you could try adding the following as Junk:—
  • Code: Select all

    info.lX6GynIXsq@redfo.jeweloint.com
MWP 7 disabled from the cloud (ßeta) | Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) | The Bat! Professional (ßeta) | Windows Firewall Control (WFC) | NOD32 EAV (ßeta) | Intel® HD Graphics 3000 | Internet Connection Speed (D=50 Mb/s U=3.5 Mb/s) | .NET Framework (4.7.1)

By the way, I read it on an article when that Ransomware spread hit almost every part of the world, the article said, that outlook has more chances of getting malware around than google mail system.
