VIRUS ALERT
« on: June 10, 2008, 22:59:15 PM »
JUSTA WARNING TO MSN USERS.  today i received a message from a friend saying here is a photo for you and a link.  I clicked the link and asked it to run.  nothing happened so I clicked and saved.  still nothing happened I tried to delete but couldn't.  then I shut down the conversation as was able to delete the file from pc.  10mins later I get a call from another freind saying what had I sent her  :?: as her pc has froze up.  Nothing I reply then my phone rings so put her on hold another freind sue tells me the same thing.  It comes up with diffent links and we think its called ACID RAIN.  It sends msn messsages to you MSN contacts and then when they try to open it infects their pc and sends messages to their contacts.  At this stage I would advise no links be oppned via Msn unless you varify the contact has sent it.  we are still trying to assertain if it concills viruse and trojons

I had the same thing not so long ago, i read around and im fairly sure it is a spam mail thing, as you say it signs into your MSN and then spams everyone in your contact list, then when they open it it does the same.
I got rid of it by uninstaaling MSN completely, restarted then ran 3 seperate virus scanners through my computer, then reinstalled MSN and changed my password for net passport.
I have heard you can stopp it by just changing your password, but it was sending msgs to my contacts when i wasnt online so i went for the full kill and start again approach!

As a rule i never ever click on links unless that person is online to ask if its safe! Learnt that the hard way like you mate.

Got that link off my sis about 2 months back, took me feckin ages to try and vault the damn thing. everytime i did it came up else where. ended up dissconnecting my computer from all external links and uninstall all prgrams i didn't need and all the lastest ones that had been installed without me knowing.

All seems to be well now though and has been for a month or so now,
