There are virus spreading via MSN protocol!!!!!
« on: January 24, 2006, 10:14:18 PM »
A week ago, while transferring a file, Avast detected a Virus in a temporary folder... Is there anything strange?? Yes, there is! Because, at the same moment, the Avast installed on my friend's pc (who was sending me the file), detected a virus in a temporary folder! So we both had been infected, via MSN (check that folder... Me and my friend use only Firefox, not IE... So I'm sure it was msn to put the infected file in that folder.

Some minutes ago, another friend was sending me a song via msn... And... A virus! In a similar folder! (again a CONTENT IE5 subfolder). He has Linux without an antivirus but, reeeeeeeally strange, his firefox crashed exactly while Avast was warning about the virus!!! So, is there something spreading across MSN servers?? :o

Here is the log of the last detection (don't care about the third line...)
