The spam suggested that if I clicked it, I could learn more about a course to become a Forensics expert. Sure enough, after clicking it, it redirects to some non-legit-looking educational site. It gets to this site through some unsavory looking sites like affiliates.adiclick.com (?) etc.
I am running Firefox and Windows Vista with User Account Control turned off. Do I need to do anything apart from running a virus scan? (I am using Webroot Antivirus - just ran it and said it found no problems)
I am pretty sure my email address has got harvested and I'll be getting more spam, but the chances of my having accidentally downloaded a keylogger or something equally malicious are vanishly small, right?
