New Virus on MSN...Warning

Post  martdee on Sat Jan 12, 2008 12:00 pm

I know you ladies like to use MSN but be warned...a nasty new virus is out there waiting to wreck your system.
I was talking to a friend on MSN last night when a link came through in the talkbox ....the link was alleged to be "naked family photo with your face" and had my email address attached.I clicked on the link and all my protection centres went crazy...the link was a flipping trojan...it went for my c:/ files ....help! I spent the night cleaning the system and removing the pest. I have run several scans before I logged on and it seems to be ok now.
I just thought I should warn you all because the person I was speaking to was in no way involved with the link and is totally trustworthy and I have warned them to check their system too.

yes thanks for the warning seems msn is an easy target for viruses.

Last year I got a nasty dose, when investigating it, I read that using windows firewall isnt enough, as it only works on incoming traffic not outgoing, so if u get infected windows firewall will allow the virus to send messages to *home* and await further instructions..

I have a free firewall called COMODO , its easy to install and easy to use..

Thanks for letting us know Marie. They're wee buggers to get rid of once they get into your system.
