Your computer appears to be stealing email addresses from websites.

Should I be worried that my Mac is really getting up to no good and spewing out harmful content or is cloudlfare in overkill mode?

Just as a side note I recently also started receiving some really weird email which I blocked (the type along the lines of “I’ve seen your photos and you’re totally my type…. my skype is blah,blah) I know that DA had some issues recently and was also wondering if there was maybe a connection?
