My friend received a call on her cell phone from a fake number listed as 1 (999) 999 9999. A few minutes later while she was on her laptop a dictionary app on her macbook opened on it's own and opened up a search for that same number.
She's very upset and worried she's gotten hacked and that someone is going through her computer. Has anyone heard of this before? If you have do you know how this happened or how to get rid of it?
