Viruses spread by MSN Messenger:


I’ve been getting some messages recently from a contact on my MSN Messenger that clearly aren’t from who they seem to be from. Rather than sending me the usual mixture of adult content and news about Steven Seagal I’ve been getting funny image links and cutesy links from this particular, earthy, northern contact.

Obviously something’s afoot. The man has a virus (this we knew years ago, but hey ho). It’s not actually ‘Eddie’ sending this rubbish, instead it’s his computor, or rather his MSN Messenger, which is infected with something nasty. It’s trying to infect others and is sending this gibberish out so that contacts click on the link and download the virus themselves.

If you’d had anything like this come through, make sure you ignore it. Equally, if Eddie Keaton messages you about anything in general, ignore that too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Computer, not computor.
    Its called Windows Live Messenger, not MSN.
    If you get this virus, I advide you to restore your system. It is the only way I have found to remove it.

  2. Advise, not advide.

    When taking the piss for typos you need to be whiter than white ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Touche, sir. Touche. Can’t you edit your post after it’s made, or is it permanent once it goes up? If you can edit it you should change those spellings, then I’d look like a right dick ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Oh, and I have been reading some of the comments on your other posts, and some of the ones regarding the HDNL and that Chris guy are quite funny. He is trying to make you seem bad, but I think he lacks the intelligence to do so. ๐Ÿ™‚
