Check Out Suspicious Computer Links with VirusTotal September 2, 2016

I had a bizarre comment on my latest post.  It was a url.  It was enough to get me to call my email provider and ask some questions that got me to the security folks.  We think it was harmless, but I changed passwords.  But it did lead to him pointing out a website that checks suspicious url’s for malware, viruses, etc.

I thought that was a cool thing to know, so here it is:  https://virustotal.com
