Is there anyone here who understands worm files? I clicked on a link tonight that splattered my system with nasty pics.
Unlike some other joke files I've seen, this one was malicious, first wiping my favorites from IE, then opening up 50-100 pop-ups (thwarting my pop-up blocker) that wouldn't close even with an ALT-F4 or a CTRL-ALT-DEL. I had to power down to clear it. Nasty. Plus it started screeching something over my sound card. Ugh.
I'm running Macafee now to check for any residuals. It didn't wipe files on my drive, at least not that I've found so far.
BTW, the link is http://www.anotherREMOVEREMOVEREMOVEuniversesucks.firstname.lastname@example.org/bomb/
if someone can figure out what exactly it does. Take out the REMOVE portion to access it. I don't want someone clicking on it by mistake.
Fucking pinheads with nothing better to do than write trojans.....
I gotta go take a shower. Yuk.
