MSN Virus

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
I got hit on 7 times... only fell for it the first time... had about 70 ppl online :-/

didn't realises WTF was happening... got hammered afterwards when i signed back in... ppl saying wtf happened, y u sent me the link for... (only newbie n00bs thoguh.. the rest of 'em undestood... or deleted me immidiate from their list :D :D :D)

Just make sure you verify any link that u get, by msg the user did he send it for real... theres more then 1 version of it going around...

Is it malicious?

Or just annoying? What does it do? just curious...
I didn't fall for it :p
Think it was advertisitng, ddin't check, but you may have all been added to a mailing list along with your contacts if you fell for it!
If you had installed the IE patch posted on this website a few days ago, this Virus didnt work

All my friends who hadnt installed the patch were infected and i was fine :D
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 :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
