What is 'linkbux'?

Hi, I got caught out by a phishing email ... it looked ok on the phone app but obviously wasn't when I saw it on the PC with the full address showing.  I reported it and went to change my password.  I've still not been able to .... so will do on phone.  I clicked on the change password link and after a while, got a message that it couldn't connect to linkbux.com - anyone know what this is?  I tried again with the password change (on bt.com) but it just opens up another webmail window.  It's not the first time I've seen it, and have been running malware, antivirus, the works.

Found the message:  www.linkbux.com  didn’t send any data.

Many thanks.

Are you sure it was Linkbux and not Linkbucks which is a malware browser hijacker.

Download and run ADWCleaner which is a malware cleaner. It should find and remove and malware on your computer.

Thanks for your reply. It is definitely 'linkbux'. I have Malware Bytes and it runs daily.
