Hiya

I dont have much info on this but thought it would be good to mention it.

Apparently this link is infecting the msn messenger and hotmail services and once the virus is installed it sends the link to pepole on your contact list.

Once the link is clicked on this box is displayed

The link looks like this

I don't know about that but my friend had a real msn messenger virus sent by one of his so called friend. Now he doesn't come on msn anymore :thumbsup: .

The link looks fishy and DO NOT SAVE IT.

It must be exploit.

Both Sunbelt's Counterspy and F-Secure Online Scanner Next Generation Beta should detect it.

Keyloggers and backdoor Trojans can be dangerours. When infected by either of them you should disconnect the computer from the Internet until your system is cleaned. If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately. You should consider them to be compromised. I suggest you change them by using a different computer and not the infected one. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breech. Because your computer was compromised please read How to report ID theft, fraud, drive-by installs, hijacking and malware.
