Warning about link going around!

  1. Hey, just wanted to let you all know that there is a web site out there (one of those "Turn up your speakers and hear the pretty music" ones where the scary face screams at you and scares you half to death) that has some sort of virus imbedded in it that swamps your computer with files and unnamed directories, and allows the originator access to any information you type in. The web site link includes the phrase "peoplesoft" and the word "freeek" in it. Just a warning- a co-worker sent this to me this morning and I've been trying all day to dump it. :>( I'm not listing the exact link here (doubtless some Curious George would click on it and make me feel guilty) but just wanted to throw you a heads up.

    I don't like those "OOH, look at my picture and tell me what's wrong" links anyway. Scares the living be-jesus out of me. Thanks for the heads up!

    I got that and opened it without problems. I have installed the 2003 symantec professional viral program and it updates all the time.

    Sounds like an urban legend to me, although I couldn't find any evidence of it. Kristi2377, where did you hear of this problem? Was the claim backed up by a reliable source? Just curious, thanks
