    This does not sound good:

    In actuality, the original post about that nasty stuff was on Friday (here is that original post: http://www.macworld.com/article/319...lware-spies-on-encrypted-browser-traffic.html). I know there are quite a few folks here who are located in Europe, so be careful! And of course, as usual, remember the sensible advice: NEVER, NEVER open an attachment to an EMail that you do not recognize, nor from a "mysterious/unknown" source.

    Thanks for sharing helpful information. I receive a lot of mails from unknown addressers because of my work. Now I'll be more careful

    You're welcome. And yes, one definitely needs to be so, so careful. For my gmail account, I receive A LOT of spam, and fortunately, it gets diverted to the Spam folder. I don't open anything in that folder, and I just delete everything there immediately.
