I was just sent an IM from some random person who used to be on my contact list, containing a link with my email address in it, asking if it was really me. I've never been to said site before, so I googled it and found out that it's not a photo album or picture of any kind, but infact a virus. Aparently it's been happening to a lot of people lately, so it could happen to any of you as well.

From what I've read, the link will have you download an image, and if you try to open said image, your computer will be infected with a virus that screws with msnm, freezes your computer, and some other stuff.

The IM will look something like this:
hey, is this really you? :S http://albums.yoyohost.com/?=[your email address]

It usually seems to come from someone who is, or used to be on your contact list, but as far as I know, it's not really them sending it. So if any of you receive an IM from anyone, even if it's a friend, and it looks anything like the above, don't click it!

This does not in fact have you download an image, but has you download a DOS executable, disguised with as "IMG00231.JPG-www.photoshare.com" as the filename.

In general, anytime someone tells you "Oh, I found your picture on the net!", don't answer. It usually ranges from someone telling you about a website with your picture, or a *.rar file containing "your picture".

More information.

If you do receive the IM mentioned above, then the person who sent you the message was infected him/herself. That's how the IM spreads. Everytime someone gets infected, it hijacks their MSN Messenger and sends the IM to all their contacts. So if you do receive it from someone, remember that it's not them sending it, and that their computer has been infected.

Also note that "Smiley packs" do the exact same thing, sending adverts to your friends without you realising.

Also, all .com files should be avoied, as they are command files, and are extremely powerful, being able to delete files that you couldn't delete even if you wanted to.

(This doesnt mean delete all .com files you see on your hard drive, just dont download them)
