Hi guys, I may be posting in a wrong section, so, sorry for that... 

Anyways, the reason Im here is that Ive been receiving weird e-mails sine June....

Those e-mails contain suspicious links and some more-less sexual messages...


I suspect that this has something to do with pornographic sites, but, honestly, Ive been visting those sites for 7 years and nothing happend, so that confuses me..

Other than me, no one uses this computer, so there is no way someone else registred on site of some kind...

Worth mentioning is that Ive never registred on any porn sites... xD


So, what can i do to prevent these e-mails? I tried to block some adresses from which these types of messages came, but messages keep coming from other adresses...

Also, what kinds of links are these?


Sorry for some mistakes, english is not my native language... :)

Many Malware websites collect your emails from one source or other(may be a browser cookie where you had logged in to gmail & visiting a porn website simultaneously)


These emails can be then passed on to multiple sources to spam you with such mails.


As suggested do a malware check & do not forget to put all such mails to spam & never ever click on links in such emails.
