Oh ok I didn’t see it was a link, yes that’s exactly what I mean. These scammers are persistent.
N7ESU's qrz page is giving me a trojan alert because of "ruqrz.com"
The "LOTW" banner image is being loaded from there:
Google reports RUQRZ as being 'safe'.
What security software are you running?
Yep. And it came with a handy keystroke logger. That might be how the password was compromised.
MOre info please.
Someone can send you an e-mail stating something like, "Your QRZ account has been hacked! Click here (qrz.com) to change your password." If you hover over the "qrz.com", you'll see it really sends you to cnn.com. Hackers just send you to somewhere that can LOOK like qrz, but isn't.
