Email from info.global.avast.com
« on: April 17, 2019, 10:28:19 AM »
I have just received email from info.global.avast.com. It says this:

No.  You should not click on any url link ([edit] or attachment) in any email, especially one you were not expecting, even if it purports to be from avast.  Just go directly to the my.avast.com account (or whatever website is listed (if safe, [edit] and you know it and have already registered)) and log in with your credentials (once in while.)

(Please note I've broken the live link above by changing it from http to hxxp.  Additionally, this live link should be https but is http instead.)
