I rcvd +30 spam emails each of the last 2 days, I don't ever recall that much volume before. Yesterday when I blocked/deleted them they were gone but today, after the initial block/delete 1 email immediately popped into my spam folder with a slightly different address from one of the others (yes, I scan the addys before deleting). A block/delete of that email and another popped up immediately. I did that 2 or 3 times and the last I simply deleted, no new ones as of this post.

Sorry but a 2 part snip is the best I could do. If not obvious, this is from me TO me:

Might want to kill that hotlink, as it appears to be not a genuine Microsoft link, and could potentially cause harm to others

Received similarly worded spam. Only noticed cause it was the only note in my junk mail. Assuming that spam filter has been wiping them in the past, just un noticed due to volume. Computer still works fine and none of my contacts have been notified of by gun browsing habits AFAIK.

Received a similar months ago.
deleted, also heard nothing back.
But I’m on a Mac so most of that crap doesn’t work on a Mac.

(Wow, in retrospect, I could’ve been a porn star.)

I get a lot of spam in my junk mail

You can easily tell it is spam due to the misspelling, poor english, odd names, etc.
