virus

so i click the link to see this "video" because i figured it was that wack-job who's always talking about the girl in the picture at txstate and has to find her and loves her just cause he saw her (who incidentally is probably insane). dont click the link its a trojan horse or whatever they call it, lucky for me norton antivirus caught it.

if you're gonna be a computer hacker at least do something thats gonna be productive...like office space.

PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ON YOUR CONTACT LIST.

In the coming days, you should be aware…

Do not open any message with an attachment called: "Invitation FACEBOOK", regardless of who sent it.

It is a virus that opens an Olympic torch that burns the whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from someone you had in your address book.

That's why you should send this message to all your contacts. It is better to receive this email 25 times than to receive the virus and open it.

If you receive E-MAIL called: "Invitation FACEBOOK", though sent by a friend, do not open it and delete it immediately. CNN said it is a new virus discovered recently and that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever!!!

It is a Trojan Horse that asks you to install an adobe flash plug-in. Once you install it, it's all over. And there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information of their function is saved.

SNOPES SAYS THIS IS TRUE:

Although that virus alert is nearly two years old, I guess it is still worth mentioning.

I don't open any I don't recognize.

It can be problematic.

I delete those immediately. Don't have anything to do with spacebook or my face.
