Hoax email Alert

Recommended Posts

I received two emails as below (I have spaced the web addresses so they are not active)

These appear to be fraudulent emails or spam. I have no idea if they represent a threat but I found some warnings when I Googled about them.

At the present time I think it is best to treat them as dangerous, and to delete them. :

It's probably safest to never download or update a program from an email notification. The links provided are usually to a fake site.

Always go to the programs own web site or other trusted site like cnet (there are others, but that's where I start). You are less likely to get infected programs from these locations.
