Virus ?

Postby t i l e x » Mon Jul 02, 2007 8:11 am

Hey guys. One of my contact on MSN recently sent me a few times this exact message (under this paragraph) and promptly disconnected after sending that message. That sounds like he might have a virus; especially since it's a .com file which can execute actions (and not the usual .com at the end of an internet adress, as computer-challenged people would think). Am I right thinking this might be a virus or am I paranoiac ?

PS: I strongly advise you guys not to click on that link:

I'm not dumb enough to open a .com file. Besides, he's been spamming that to me for like 10-15 minutes now so I really guess it's a virus of some sort.

This is a common way for viruses to propagate, and why virus writers are usually looked down upon. They require an innocent user's incompetence. And the purpose is either to cause direct harm for no good reason, or to assemble a botnet which itself has little use outside of malice.
