Strange emails with Google.docs links to pharma storeQuestion:
I received an email with a DOCS.GOOGLE.COM..... link in it. See partial URL below.
Don't worry. I deleted the last characters of the URL on both sides.
ttp://docs.google.com/View?id=dkdg3hd__________ I deleted the rest of the address
As soon as I clicked it a swarm of email shot out from my hotmail account with a pharma web page link.
1. How did this happen?
2. Isn't my Norton supposed to protect me?
3. What programming language is in that google docs link?
4. Does GOOGLE.DOCS have any useful purpose besides pharama ads?
5. What setting do I need to change in my IE8 to ensure that this doesn't happen again?
If there are web links that answer the above questions then please supply them to me. This is NOT the first time I stupidly clicked on an email link.
