I received an email message from Yahoo that my computer had been accessed from another site, a supposed auto body shop that was a Web Forgery. I was requested to 'click here' before my account was cancelled. What is going on and what happens now?

Do I need all those plugins?

Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated,

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS.

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be Malware or a Virus. Any time you want or need to check for upgrades, go to the web site of the True Owner of the program in question. For example, to check out Firefox, go to Mozilla.org.

In a case like this, you should contact the sender using there normal contact, not the contact info in the message.

Your reply was somewhat helpful but you did not answer my questions. Do you investigate such an item or not? I also asked a question about plugins. Is that your purview or not? Thank you.

Hi,

If you still have the e-mail, can you give me a screenshot so I know what you're seeing? Please see How do I create a screenshot of my problem? to create a screenshot
Once you've done this, attach the saved screenshot file to your forum post by clicking the Browse... button below the Post your reply box. This will help us to visualize the problem.

   Do you investigate such an item or not?

No. Simply because users should be wary of what they download. If users find something on Firefox they're not sure of, they post here. Most of the times, it's junk.

 Do I need all those plugins? 

What plugins are you referring to? If it was contained in the e-mail then no, you don't.
