    Virus.

    At midnight tonight Microsoft are being attacked by a virus known as Jesus is indestructable. Please turn off you pc's before then and unplug the internet cable. Firewalls and virus blockers will not work. Turn on tomorrow at 10:00 am And all will be safe. Trust me on this as New York has already been hit with it. Good luck and spread the word. Astra_Starter

    LOL well one advantage for running a mac, just spoke to peeps in the US and apparently it cant hurt mac users unless they are running a virtual PC program, will affect ISP's and mail servers though so i'll stay online at middnight then and watch the net crumble !

    The only one that is making its way around alot of people is the W32/Blaster-A Worm at the moment.

    Am actually quite surprised at how many people this worm has caught out recently. There seem to be alot of people not running a Virus checker and Firewall :shock:
