So, without thinking, I clicked on a link. Sent from a xtra account. Anyway, I'm wondering, as I'm using Linux, what sort of stuff could have sneaked on?

Hi Nick G,

Malware or Spyware isn't prevalent in Linux based distributions. There can be exploits targeted at specific programs that could possibly trigger things to happen, but the chance for it at this stage is pretty low.

I would say you're pretty safe and have nothing to worry about.

Cheers,

KK

And I don't think that link carried nasties.

I think it was only if you went to the site, and filled in the info. If a window came up asking for details. That'll you'd have to worry about it

Right, sounds like I'm all good then.
