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

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 :)
