2 days ago I noticed a shortcut in 'My Network Places' under the Internet category that leads to an offical goverment site (which I shall not name at this stage).
At first I thought very little about this until yesterday when one of my admin team (who works remotetly from their home) said they found the same link.
How are these links placed on my computer?
Can they be harmful?
Is this organisation tracking our activity?
How can I stop them from happening again?
PS - we recently had a disagreement with this organisation which lead to a major event being cancelled due to their costs. As a result of this, the national press picked up on the story and backed our side, giving this org some bad press. So if they are tracking our activity, I would not be surprised.
