[Pro] Spammers and resources

I have my vCard available on my site for download. It contains my email address and I’m wondering if it can be read by spam-bots? Anyone know?

Probably. It’s a file, and it’s linked from a Web page, it’s probably common knowledge.

Thanks Walter. Much as I feared. :frowning:

I suppose zip files are not legible, but they can’t be used on iOS (by the average punter).

Would you download a zip file without any fears?

I certainly wouldn’t.

Well, it wouldn’t bother me. Not much it can do on a Mac … well nothing really, without your permission. But aside from that, it really defeats the purpose.

No problem as long as it’s not set to be opened.

I would use Terminal to unzip it and then examine the contents, again, in Terminal.

Not in its zipped state but unzip and god only knows what you are letting out.
