Hey guys, This is actually my first post. Ive been searching for indicators using various websites. I went on my google docs today had a document that i had not created. The document had a description of a indicator with a screenshot of it on a chart. Below was a link to download it. After some research i believe this was an attempt to give me malware.
I believe someone managed to get my email from MQL5.com and sent me the document. The strange thing was that they knew which indicator i was after. It wasn’t just a random one. It was the one i have been looking for on various websites. Anyway if this happens to you do not open the document.
If you access it they will know when you looked at it and where your mouse was located. Then i would guess they will try to attack you in different ways knowing you are active. Im not much of a computer person but i would assume they can also get your I.P from this.
sorry for being a bit long winded but hopefully this can help someone else. If you get one of these Google docs just report it as Malware. In the mean time i might look into getting a VPN to protect my online activity especially when it comes to important data such as forex trading.
