URGENT MSN users VIRUS

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
a MEDIUM RISK mass-mailing worm that
emails itself to MSN Messenger contact lists. Worse, it also
attempts to send MSN Messenger usernames and passwords to
the virus author via an email message. So far, the virus
has a limited spread, but has been seen in several languages,
including English and Spanish.

This is from McAffee, the virus is W32/Nichello@mm

Please can this be left in this forum just for today because lots of posters use MSN and they are more likely to get this message here rather than if it was moved to the correct thread.

Many thanks :)

    Scan any attachments before you open. If you dont recognise the sender delete it if unsure.

    Thats the only advise i can offer......im pretty crap when it comes to this type of thing :lol:
    I have McAfee send me emails of any new viruses just so im aware of them, then im just more cautious about what I open and what I dont :)

    Does anyone suffer from the email virus that attempts to send a virus from your account to random other people, but it keeps getting bounced back?

    Well, I know what I mean! :eek2:

    used to but now I have a new account. But with my old account I used to get a lot of junk mail, see some wiseguy thought it was funny to forward all his crap to me, rather than deleting it. Bloody annoying!

    I had that last Summer!! That was such a fucker! :mad: People would email me back telling me to stop sending them viruses and swearing at me and I wasn't even doing anything! :( It went on for like four days and I just deleted that account and made a new one and all was well.

    Dammit.
