good day! MSN users if someone by the name of Mark Genesis Gallardo (rugbylegend) wants to add you to their list, don't accept it. It's a virus. Tell everyone on your list because if somebody on your list adds them you will get it, too. It is a hard drive killer and a very horrible virus. Please pass this on to everyone on your list.

Er...Thanks for the warning! I'll have to remember the name now next time I go on MSN. x3

One less computer virus to destroy my computer. Now it can die a more slow and painful death instead! :D

He was warning the members of PC.The contact will say something like
"Can i put this picture of you on MySpace?" and then it doesn't reply.
Just a virus and it was only a warning to other people that dont know about it.

Anything relating to computers and technology belongs in the ... well, Computer/Technology section.

I will close this though, just because it should be common sense to not accept random file transfers from contacts, especially from those who you just added 3 seconds beforehand which are obviously very suspicious.
