Watch out --- IM virus going around
    #4119535 - 05/01/05 06:47 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hello pubbers, if you receive an IM from someone with the message "hey check out this" ("this" being a hyperlink) do not click it. Having seen people infected with this sort of malicious software before (and the fact that the person who first sent it was someone who probably wasn't going to send me any interesting links anytime soon  :shocked:), I did not click it. The link that is sent varies, it re-directs you to the website that downloads the program. Don't know what it does, but it sends a link to everyone on your buddy list when you idle.

Remember to keep all of your definitions up to date, and if you do not have anti-virus software, get it.


Take it easy and stay clean :cool:.

yep my friends have it here.... f-en idiots. I got 3 ppl on my buddy list sending me that.

Any fix to this?

here is the link ive been sent. It appears to not work anymore. I donwloaded that file but of course didnt run it. No virus detection or ad software is picking it up.

Here is the suspicous link i only post it as it appears to not be working on more.

Yep the ending is "/gallery.com" but the rest of the url can vary, I have no idea if there is a fix to be honest, though I'm sure there will be an email from Norton or McAfree (or whoever).

I believe it to be a W32/Kelvir-Re variant which port scans for vulnerable ports as well as other stuff. Looks like it can spread itself thru other messanging services too.

This kinda shit happens everyday, just don't be a computer noob and you'll be fine. Just don't accept anything which looks suspicious, because chances are it will be something trying to exploit you/you're computer.

By the way, even clicking on the link can be pretty hazardous, there are many malicious HTML scripts which can secretly infect your computer with all sorts of crap without your knowledge nor consent.

Yep, just got such an IM...The .com file ending means that it does something with DOS I think...

I was offered an MSN virus. The message was: OMG, this is SOOOO funny! And the link was blablablablacute.pif or something.

Don't click any strange links from IM's. Bad news.

Its nothing new, but it recently ran thru aim quite fast. AOL says they are going to be able to block it and stop the messaging soon. We'll see
