Well Looks like someone figured out how to exploit the active x controls that allows web sites to identify the messenger... I'm glad I uninstalled that Mess... At this rate, it’s in pretty good competition with outlook as a propagator of hackers and crackers mayhem... LOL

You arent wrong there Rod, we all thought this was going to happen .....

MS are going to have to act quick on this one .... no Antivirus runs on MSN messenger at present

There must be millions infected today

Is it malicious?

I was stupid and clicked the link but then got the patch. Also, this board is set up pretty good. Kudos

I wonder wether the Hack steals your contact emails ?

A few million emails in a list would be worth a few $$$ for spammers

There have been so many security issues i seem to be installing patches every few days lately

Atleast they are fixing them :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
