My husband and I(and others) received two separate emails from his brother, with the link www.cuzq.goodmedx.com and www.afjb.abouthealthc.com. There was no Subject listed and nothing in the email except the link. As the brother is very seriously ill with stage 4 throat cancer, my husband thought this was a related health link and clicked on the link. He got a notice saying this was not a good link, so he deleted the email and I did not click on either link sent to me. We told the brother that he may have a vrius and explained how a virus can get in your address book. He said his computer had not been turned on all morning so how could the emails have been sent if the computer was not on? So I suppose that is my question. #1-are they viruses, and #2- does your computer have to be turned on for emails to be sent from your address? Though I suppose the 2nd question is moot, as they were sent and he knows the computer was not on.
Thank you.
