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
