And me - obviously a fake. Still, a very nasty misuse of the forum.

Viruses tend to go through address books of your email, so someone on the forum has more than likely a virus that they don't know about and it's sending out these emails, just don't open them.

I think we all go that message...at least it sounds like it. I started to go onto the site, but my McAfee program warned me not to enter the site, as it contained MALware. Delete! LOL!

No, this message was most certainly spam. They always seem to find ways of getting round preventions don't they. It's no doubt an automated process and not a real person at all.

NOT NOT CLICK ON THE LINK!

I've just send messages to every user to warn them. And I have of course deleted the member.

I'll also look and see if there's a way the personal messanger can be disabled for new users.

Good work Mr Chris,

I have a couple of friends who run the admin side of websites, and these annoying blighters can spoil their day. Personally, I no longer use Microsoft anyway, so my Ubuntu box has no probs with any kind of germs. ;)

Good work Mr Chris,

Linux is certainly safer than M$, but not immune. I have 2 Linux servers, and we are starting to see more exploits targeted at Linux. You may wish to look in to Clam AV. I believe it is available through the Ubuntu repository.

We use a black list on most of our managed forums and it seems to help. Since we use phpBB and vbulletin, I am not that familiar with IPS, however http://community.invisionpower.com/resourc...html?record=185 may be a useful link

Good luck with the Spammers

Done that! I asked IPB to upgrade me to the newest version (which works until the spammers find a new way to get around it) and enroll me for the Spam Monitor thing mentioned in your link.
