PostSubject: Warning MSN virus!!!   Mon Feb 11, 2008 1:00 am

I have latley uncovered A msn virus that is rapidly spreading itself among msn users it poses itself as a picture and as soon as you open it it invades your comp sending itself to other people in your contacts:



The screen print I have shown did not show the writing at the top my friend started the convo with:

Hi can i shove this pic of us two onto facebook please, he then continued to send a download to me, this was not my friend sending me it, it was a virus

I have scanned it with avg and the virus report is a follows:



Please to every msn user out there if anyone starts a convo with you looking like thgis do not even recive the file if you do agree to recive it do not open it,

Too all those out there that it is too late for, take my advise in future scan fles you recive over msn before you iopen them.

Recommended Anti-virus software:

AVG free

Downloadable from:

OMG about 50 million people have that, when i realised it was a virus, was happy it doesn't work on Vista, i think =P
so, does it like, do anything other than just spread it's self or is it like a Trojan horse or some mass serial file killer or... hehe

edit: also it's quite sad that corey was denying the fact he, neither his pc, sent that lol

I had that Virus at some point, it sent Emails to one of my contacts about 20 times within 10 minutes.

I found a free program from Microsoft's website that removed it though...Can't remember the name...

Hmmm, i had a thought at one point, i log on to msn as busy now, mainly because i think when you go 'online' as apposed to away, busy etc. this sets off the virus, well, this was the idea i got as i changed my status. So if you have lots of friends with the virus, maybe just staying as 'busy' might stop you being spammed by them, it's just an idea, I've only noticed this once.

LoL, me being an expert in technology says: that Virus is pathetic and if you have a real Internet protection system then you have nothing to worry about and it would help if you have common sense eg. telling your friend that you are sending something or asking "Did you just send me something" before you accept to receive a file or open a file you have received. I have actually traced that particular virus back to it's creator and i was surprised to find out that someone working in Microsoft actually created it because i found out that the location the virus was first sent from was a computer in one of microsoft's offices in America !!!

But if you knew that much about tech then you should know that virus senders can re-route connections through other people's computers, And I myself have AVG that pickked it up Instantly but this is just to warn other people not to be stupid and click on the file lolz.

and belive me on this one sice I create viruses and download them to test on a quarantine machine keeping a database of them lol arn't I the sad one Razz
