Is It a Chinese Fishing Program?

Will it perhaps will get installed and steal info from our PCs?

They are just spam posts, and I think they are written in Korean, not Chinese.

EDIT: And, the term I think you meant is phishing ;-)

Thank you, Jyrkkä Jätkä!

My etymology is wrong: Programs designed to fish out info.
