O.P. Virus on MSN
I went downstairs to watch tv and returned and im being spoken to by 10 people. I suddenly feel popular until i realise they are all saying the same thing to me, its obviously some virus.

DONT CLICK THE LINK- to make sure no one stupid enough does it i've deleted on the 't's in http.

"*) You've g: omg this is funny!
           htp://jose.[][][][][][][][][][].att.net/cute.pif"

Anyone know what virus this is? I havent clicked the link yet, im not that daft but i'd like to prepare myself if someone incompetent in my family does.

Plus i could blackmail my friends with the knowledge of the cure.

Meh. It's nothing special. Almost exactly the same as the last. Downloads a 508KB file to C:\patch.exe from home.comcast.net and executes it. Creates a service named hotkeysvc etc. It hasn't changed much at all. They're getting boring, the variant creators need more imagination. :P
The previous sentence is false. The following sentence is true.

well why don't u code something, sure it would beat anything anyone else could make :rolleyes:

Suggesting someone to make a virus will piss the staff off. It has done so before, just a friendly warning.

WHO THE F*** uses that kinda file? I eman seriously its stupid ppl getting it, and then you have to bust your ass finding them ways to get it out, thx for the link btw its rlly helpfull!1

Not everyone is as elite as you, sir. Besides, .PIF files are cool. As are .ES, .EVIL, .SEPH, gotta love them. Unless you'd like to spend your time educating people to not do something (which result in them doing it) then seriously, don't reply to topics like this unless you can offer help.There are for too many posts where someone asks for virus help and then they get put down by posters calling them idiots and such. Please don't be tempted to do this, it doesn't help the situation, really.
