I just received a suspicious fax email.  I didn't open the fax but did click the link to view it in browser.  Is Webroot upto date with this threat?  How do i confirm I don't have it?

@sirmashalot ,

Did you receive a fax or email? A fax is sent to a fax machine by use of a phone number. An email would be sent to your email address like an @gmail.com address.

Generally, the best advice is to never open a suspicious looking email. Safe is always better than sorry. If you do ever realize, after the fact, that you’ve opened a suspicious email, run a virus scan using Webroot right away.
