Skype DoT members!

Post by Sealand on Thu Oct 25, 2012 5:26 am

In case you haven't run into it already, there's a virus that's been running around.

If you see anyone going 'lol is this your profile pic *tinyurl link*'

DO. NOT. CLICK IT.

And tell your friend that they have a virus.

That link will automatically download a virus to your computer, and will get you to say on skype the same message. If you do click it, look for help. Mac and SEEMINGLY Google Chrome browser users are immune, although I still wouldn't trust it.

Stay safe, Dawnlanders, hopefully this will blow over soon.

A couple of points of additional advice, in case you DO get infected:

You'll want to immediately delete the downloaded object from your downloads folder (And empty your recycle bin). From there, you should also check your %appdata%/Roaming folders for any odd looking .exe files, and delete them right away.

From there, make frequent virus scans, and contact someone if the effects remain.

(Even if the recent "virus" was a nasty prank of Dark's, this thread is still practical if the virus pops up for real a second time.)

I stripped the virus and dissected it. Then used the script to input my own little message. The messages are safe. This is what you get...

No one's infected, everyone's fine. This close to Halloween, I enjoy a little trickery now and then! Sorry!
