PostSubject: Spam Warning!!   8/10/2008, 11:15 am

A few members have been getting a suspicious link sent to them via MSN instant messenger that appears to be coming from other members -- if this pops up in your MSN, do NOT click the link! I cannot verify what it may do to your computer, but at the very least it is spam and probably contains spyware.

Remember, never download anything that looks vaguely suspicious.

Just so you know what to look for, here's the URL that's been going around so you know what NOT to click on (I disabled the link in this case):

http: // gongylophis . picthanks . com

In some cases it may have the word "member" and your MSN email address posted in there -- it may also ask you to log in with your MSN address and password (I was dumb enough to do this before I realized what was going on, but luckily I haven't used that email address for anything but signing in to MSN in almost four years).

The other form:

http: // mantis . man . imguser . com : 4545 (clicking this led to the previously mentioned link)

I found out that something similar was sent from my account to a friend of mine, while my computer was still turned off. I'm running a spyware scan right now.

It happened to my future sister in law a few months ago!
I have recently scanned my computer but will do so again soon
