I got an e-mail (in my spam folder) from firstname.lastname@example.org which asks me to click a link to validate my login for their website. Obviously, I deleted this e-mail without clicking it's link. But, I am still wondering if this e-mail was sent by one of the many website where I had registered for some webinar or white paper.
Out of curiosity, I searched google for this e-mail id and for idcenter.uc.cn but found almost nothing. Luckily MyWot had some info for this and some info about the registrar too. But, I am not even sure if MyWot is correct. Moreover, if there is no source like mywot, then how do I find out the source of such e-mails and verify if the source is legitimate or not ? Its a different matter that the source may be legitimate, but was hijacked.
