Stay away from spam

Spam campaigns are one of the most popular methods of attack among cybercriminals. The process involves sending out thousands of emails, usually from a phony source, with a fake promotion or offer in the subject line and body. The goal is to trick you into opening the spam email and clicking through to the alleged offer. When you get an email that looks spammy, just delete it. If you do happen to open it, make sure you don’t click on any links or download any attachments. It’s likely that these files include malware that will infect your computer.
