I started up a thread about it a while back for the virus checker. Everyone seemed to feel it was a big scam. Guess we will see tomorrow.

I remember you mentioned that article limdis. Still sounds sketchy though. Just like you said, we will have to wait until tomorrow. Oh wait, lol it is. Just looked at the post date. Has anyone experienced anything as a result of this?

I didn't figure many people would actually get infected here.. I doubt, well more like hope, that most of us peoplez are smart enough to keep ourselves away from malicious shizz.

I would hope so also. Was just curious to see wtf this was really all about. Plus not everyone uses their pc/laptop as the only sole user on it.
