Recently I found that Rick's great grandfather served in the Grand Army and that his brother has one of the ribbons with doo dads. So I found the regiment and company and an ebook about it and ordered it online using my personal PP account.
The next day I received an email from the person whose name is on the site, clicked to download my ebook and instead received ... (fanfare).... a nice MALicious bug with lots of unremovable pop ups, after which with my friend's help I installed malware through one of our related "clean" computers and then removed the offender.
I need to report this site and the email from the site's owner. Knowing that PP doesn't do anything generally for sales outside of eBay, and looking at my choices for reporting a security etc. problem, I don't see one that is related. And at this time of night they are closed to phone calls.
Should I wait until tomorrow and telephone? Has this happened to any of you? I don't now if I want to call the telephone number given on this site, but what if the site owner's site was invaded? Is it better to let PP handle it? Will PP do anything since this was an off eBay purchase?
I cannot believe this happened again so soon. We have had our computer fill with pornography and then go black, had previous malicious activity, and things added in that added themselves to other sites. At least this time we didn't have to pop for our tech to come out and use a bug bomb. Well, it's time to tighten up the hatches even more.
Any help appreciated.
