Hey all. Over the past several months, I've gotten dozens of emails from Yahoo webmail users with nothing in the subject line and just a spam link inside. I admit I clicked on the first one I got, thinking it was a legit link from somebody I knew. The link took me to a "v1agr@" site. Don't worry; I know better now. Really knew better THEN, but did it anyway. Anyway ...

I tell everybody who sends me one to do an antivirus/antispyware scan. I told a girl that today and she got rather angry, saying she ran Spybot S&D and AVG and they said no virus found.

Could somebody please tell me what this worm, bot, trojan, etc. is called, so that I can tell her that her computer and/or Yahoo account has indeed been compromised?

Thanks!
