question re: opened spam attachment
Yesterday I opened an e-mail from a friend, click on the attachment & it was a Webpage to the Fat Loss Factor. I even clicked a link on that page (please don't judge) ( :
After reading up on the subject I am more informed now, however,
I received and e-mail from the same friend today, this time I marked it spam on gmail w/o opening it or the attachment.
Then I received an e-mail from Apple stating I had "logged onto iCloud from my Iphone5".... I don't remember doing this.. so, I just changed my Apple ID and password.
Is there anything else I should do?
My friend is aware that her account has been hijacked.
Thank you to anyone who can help!!!!

Did you input any data from your iCloud account on the link you clicked?
If not it is just mere coincidence and now you changed your iCloud AppleID and password you are OK.

I didn't type in any bank info for sure, but I can't say with 100% certainty, that I didn't type in my e-mail address, which was my Apple ID. And I do not remember going on icloud at all.
Are there any other steps I should take?
If you click on a spam attachment and the link on it like I did, should I change my e-mail address altogether?
Thanks for your time ( :
No, didn't enter any icloud data!

You can read more about this here: Mac Virus/Malware FAQ - Mac Guides
You changed your AppleID and password now, you are OK, but read that page for safe browsing, and no I do not think you are a fool, we all start with making mistakes, as long as you learn from this it's Ok.
