default WARNING, WE GOT 3 SPAMBOT POSTS WITH HIDDEN TROJENS

Post by melodiccolor on Tue May 14, 2013 4:18 pm

This happened between the time I logged off last night and the time I got on this morning. Even opening the thread will cause a trojen to try to surreptitiously download on your computer. I see each thread had 4 to 5 views. If you viewed the posts, do a full malware and virus scan immediately!

One of our members found this out the hard way but her protection program warned her. All she did was click on the link. Tezorian was infected removing the threads.

If you see suspicious spambot threads in the future, do not open them.

No worries, not infected. AV just had a bit of trouble showing me the links. For a good reason probably.

Oh glad to hear. I found out how to move or delete threads without opening them. So they are now fully deleted, won't show in post history either.

I just finished changing my password on Dimensions, MC, due to your cautionary note. Something others here might consider doing as well.
