  1. We here at SUPERAntiSpyware HQ have noticed in uptick in spam that claims to be Microsoft attempting to inform users their Office account email storage space is almost full and to prevent incoming/Outgoing mail from getting bounced back, to click the supplied link to add an additional 10 gigs of free and mandatory storage. This of course is an obvious scam to phish your password as the link takes you to a fake Office 365 login screen. Example of the spam. Beyond the obvious sketchy character of the email, hovering over the links within the email with your mouse pointer clearly shows it takes you to a different website and not a Microsoft website. We here at SUPERAntiSpyware recommend you simply delete this email, and do not click any links within the email. If you have been scammed by this email, immediately change your Office 365 account password and consider looking into changing your spam settings to avoid future spam emails such as these. Remember, if you do not recognize the sender address, do not open the email, and also if you do open an email always hover your mouse pointer over the emails links to see where they’re trying to take you.
  2. We here at SUPERAntiSpyware HQ have noticed in uptick in spam that claims to be PayPal attempting to get users to “Confirm your information” in regards to “Unauthorized decides connected to your account”. This of course, is a clever way to try to phish your PayPal login information and steal it. Example of what the Phishing email looks like. Beyond the obvious sketchy character of the email, hovering over the links within the email with your mouse pointer clearly shows it takes you to a different website and not PayPal. Link goes to rogue website We here at SUPERAntiSpyware recommend you simply delete this email, and do not click any links within the email. If you have been scammed by this email, immediately change your PayPal account password and consider looking into changing your spam settings to avoid future spam emails such as these. Remember, if you do not recognize the sender address, do not open the email, and also if you do open an email always hover your mouse pointer over the emails links to see where they’re trying to take you.
  3. We at SUPERAntiSpyware have noticed in uptick in spam that claims to be associated with verifying your email address to set up a Microsoft Account. Fake Microsoft account verification email We recommend you immediately delete this email, do not click the “Verify Your email address button” it will redirect you to a known phishing site to try to steal your account information. You can tell the button is fake by simply hovering your mouse over the button and taking a look at the URL, clearly non-Microsoft related. Clicking this button does not verify your account, it brings you to a phishing website that will lure you into giving up your account information! If you have been scammed by this email, immediately change your Microsoft account password and consider looking into changing your spam settings to avoid future spam emails such as these. Remember, if you do not recognize the sender address, do not open the email!
  4. Should superantispyware detect malware with a '.vbs' extension, from junk mail? Much of those I receive are missed, whether I have the latest update,or have set to scan inside archives or not. SASW is not the only software that doesn't always detect them. I usually just bin the emails, and of course for any with unknown attachments from unknown users, you should always bin them, but as a test here is my latest attachment. The vbs files I receive are usually hidden inside archives, within another archive itself, which seemingly is an attempt to make them harder to detect I would upload it here, but I suspect the file would then go public. Is there a page to submit files? thanks (edit - perhaps this should have been posted within the malware detection section) Similar to this, although the actions of the vbs script file may obviously differ click here
  5. No, SUPERAntiSpyware is not an unsolicited e-mail (UCE) filter. Please note that technically, the term spam refers to unwanted e-mail only. Spam is not the same as malware, spyware, adware, trojans, etc.
