G-mail is considered to be one of the few e-mail services today that give people a professional looking mailing address, but even Google and their high security restrictions could become vulnerable to malware and target for hackers. Basically, regardless of what e-mail provider you are using, you should always scan attachments (photos, documents, videos, etc.) before downloading them on your computer. Remember the box that appears every time you wish to download an attachment? It asks you whether you want to just open the file or save it, right? Well, even if you choose to ONLY open it, you should still verify its security. Because one it gets on your screen it is there and every string attached to it will be there too, like it or not, want it or not.

Few days later you go through your computer and history and you discover some weird files that you have never heard of before–BAAM, say “hello” to the virus because it has arrived in your computer. You may not even have to look for these files because most likely you will begin noticing slowness of performance with your device, strange glitches and annoying bugs. This will get your attention, right? What happened is that because the website you used to get your song was insecure, you did not manually scan and check the file for infections and you ended up getting random malicious files that harmed your computer just because of one song.
