AIM Virus.





.ZR.
This isn't for me. Although if I used windows it would be.
Well, a friend of mine got a link from someone, clicked it, and clicked run.
This being through AIM as the title suggests.

She actually sent me two messages. The first one she only sent to me, but the second one she sent to several people. I know one of those people did click and run the virus because soon after getting the message from the first friend, the second friend sent a similar one.

I don't know what the virus is or how to get rid of it. Which is why I'm here. Because I'm a good friend and I'd have it, too if I didn't use Linux.

She uses Windows XP and the message was as follows (Don't. Click. The. Link.)

I'd really love some help with this. Even just a name of the virus would be nice. 'cause then I would have something to go on with google. As is, though, I can't find anything that's very helpful.

Thanks in advance (:

And I apologize if this was already posted. I did a quick search but it wasn't as thourough as it should have been.

I edited the link - added a load of "zzzz" to it. It's really not a good idea to post a direct link to a virus whether you say "Don't click this" or not.

I've left most of the content of the link so that people can compare it with possible similar messages they've received. However, a bit of advice: Don't try to fix the link and see what happens when you go to the address!!!

Sorry about that, Animal. I wasn't sure if people would need the link or not to figure out what the virus was Embarassed
