Hey, i just got a virus while on AIM. It came to me from a friend as a link. When i opened the link, it asked me to save something, which i did. i then opened it. It started making me Buddy window go all weird like. So, if you get a link from someone and the links says something about 'pics' and 'cats' or 'kitty' then DON'T open it. EVER.


edit: here's the exact link for it:

http:// funny.afz.biz / pics.php ?cat_id = 11&file = checkit.jpg

Dont't open this.

[Edited to make link inactive, just in case --PJ]

Retracted post. Can't tell if that executable file is a virus or not. Anyone? AVG indicates it's not a virus.
