    If anyone gets a message regarding a virus, IGNORE IT!!!! Don't even confirm the receipt. He is trying to get you into a website to install a trojan.
    The message I got looks like:

    Thanks, I figured something like that when it asked for the confirmation. My email address did get hacked a few years ago, I got several messages from military bases threatening me with legal action if I kept sending those messages to service members. It happened for a couple of weeks then I guess one of my anti-bot/trojan programs found it.

    Web sites cannot determine you have a virus / trojan, etc. unless you have previously given permissions for it to scan your computer. This is a very common way hackers get you to install a trojan so they can use your computer for a DDOS attack on a single server. This means they control your computer along with thousands of others to hack a server.... and that is if you are lucky. There have been instances of child porn groups using this same method to store child porn on unknowing users' computers around the world in order to have it but not get caught. One couple actually spent 3 years & hundreds of thousands of dollars defending themselves for this very reason.

    I opened it, but didn't allow the accompanying 'pop up' that asked for 'something' (didn't read it, just hit the 'x') to follow through.. Do you think I am infected!? I logged in because of a private message that was from a woman in 'trouble' and in need of 'financial assistance'.... GRRrrr. Now, this.

    By the way, how are you all doing... it's been some time.

    Yes. Don't click on the link. It's obviously a virus. I just deleted it.
    Currently finishing a keg of an Imperial Pumpkin Ale that I brewed for Christmas. The best Pumpkin ale I've ever had.

    so long as you don't enter any info or install anything & don't click any links i the pop up window you should be OK.

    I just happened to check my PM's and noticed this same message, and was going to start a thread to address this, but obvious it has been addressed already.

    So, may I ask, why do they no longer post here and share their knowledge with us?
