Received email from ISP saying one of my devices has malware

My dad received a suspicious email from our ISP ( The email was from and it had our userid (xxxxxxxx@a i masked it) in the email so it must have come from the ISP itself.

The device becomes part of the botnet due to malware/virus installed on it. To secure your devices , Kindly check your devices for malware/ botnet using Antivirus S/w. For more information on malware/botnets and the counter measures kindly visit You can also download "Free botnet removal tools". Thanks & Warm Regards, MTNL, Mumbai 

I extracted all links from the email and scanned them via url scanner but all were reported as safe.



Looking online there is a similar question on Quora but different scenario.


  • Two mobile phones (Android)
  • One laptop (Windows 10 with Avira antivirus)


  • Can an ISP really detect this?

  • Should I action on this and what to do?

How to send messages in the order they were queued, while ensuring that client B does not have to wait until client A has received his message?

I have a simplified producer/consumer pattern implemented below. The code outputs:


1 second delay


1 second delay


1 second delay


What approach can I take here to get rid of the 1-second delay between different letters?

What I’m looking for is something like



1 second delay



It’s important, that clients A and B receive the messages in the order the messages were queued in, but I do not want other clients to be blocked while processing for one client takes a really long time. Using two BlockingCollections and two consumer threads is not an option, because the user count is dynamic.

using System; using System.Collections.Concurrent; using System.Threading.Tasks;  namespace ConsumerProducer {     public enum ClientId     {         A,         B     }      class WebSocketMessage     {         public ClientId ClientId { get; }          public WebSocketMessage(ClientId clientId)         {             ClientId = clientId;         }          public async Task LongRunningSend()         {             Console.WriteLine(ClientId);             await Task.Delay(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1));         }     }      class Program     {         public static BlockingCollection<WebSocketMessage> Messages = new BlockingCollection<WebSocketMessage>();          static async Task Main(string[] args)         {             var consumer = Task.Run(async () =>             {                 foreach (var message in Messages.GetConsumingEnumerable())                 {                     await message.LongRunningSend();                 }             });              ClientId clientId = ClientId.B;             while (true)             {                 // Flip between A and B                 clientId = clientId == ClientId.A ? ClientId.B : ClientId.A;                  Messages.Add(new WebSocketMessage(clientId));                  await Task.Delay(TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(100));             }         }     } } 

How can I replace a feat that I received as a class feature

I took 2 levels of Monk, for Invisible Fist and free Improved Trip from Passive way. The latter gave me the quite unusable Combat Expertise.

Is there a way to replace it? I know the Dragonborn template makes it possible to replace a feat for a Draconic feat. Unfortunately my DM does not let me become one.

How else can I replace a feat obtained from a class?

Official 3.5 material only. Dragon magazine is not accepted by my DM.

Can I travel to Canada? | Received RFE for H1-B transfer petition

I have my current H1-B visa valid upto July-2021 on my passport. However I recently moved to a different team within the same company and hence had to file a H1-B COE petition. But we received an RFE (Request for Evidence) lately and we are currently working with Immigration team to frame the response to USCIS.

With this in my mind, can I still travel to Canada & return back to the US on my current H1-B visa? Please advise.

Thank you.

Received all dependent UK visas but not the primary visa

What could lead to dependents receiving their entry visas before the primary applicant? Main question: Is it true that my application has to be successful before they would issue dependent visas?

I applied from the U.S. for a tier 4 student visa for a PhD program in the UK. What makes my application somewhat unique, perhaps, is that I have 5 dependents coming with me (spouse and 4 children).

I have now received the 5 successful dependent visas via UPS, but mine (the primary or sponsoring visa) has not even shipped yet. I have the return label tracking numbers for all of the 2nd Day Air UPS packages. 5 are delivered (obviously, I have them in hand) but mine has not even been picked up by UPS yet.
