Question: Is the forum related to any kind of MSN virus?

Post  MikeV on Fri Feb 12, 2010 4:50 pm

Answer: No.

I am a great example as I have received a number of requests from MSN ("add me") and I have never put my hotmail address on the forum except from the APEAL only section which is restricted with a specific access.

You don't feel better? One guy who changed program and is no more in the BEALS has received 10 "add me" requests on MSN and has not registered on here. The virus is probably taking a copy of your contact list (the virus will not attack your hard drive or anything no worries) and when accepted in your contact list, it might use your list (I don't know how) to reach new victims. It's basically fake people with automated messages concerning either company websites or sex websites.

This forum has nothing to do with such kind of problem. No worries concerning that issue. It is external and is not related to this website :)

I heard that it has something to do with Facebook, 'cause the only people affected are guys and most of the ones I know are not in the forum AND they all have a facebook account...

It's probably a crappy facebook app that takes your personal info and sends it to whoever is willing to pay for it... (like internet strippers...)
