Exclamation Attention Administrators - (Zero-Day) Forum Virus Warning

Just a heads up folks, just in case.

A friend of mine recently got a fast growing forum virus from his BMW (car) Racing forums. Apparently this is happening allot all over the net. See below.

"My car forum got hacked and someone loaded up a zero-day virus. The virus will constantly turn your volume all the way down, minimize a full-screen application and then launch several stealth Internet Explorer processes (and others) and play audio advertisements constantly. Anti virus didn't pick up anything. At the recommendation of another user I ran SpyBot under the Guest account on my XP machine and it seemed to have cleared it up as when I logged back into my normal account it was no longer happening. However, when I finally rebooted it was bricked, couldn't even get into safe mode. Ran the repair after booting from the XP cd and still no boot. Had to reformat without a chance to get any of my data off. FML.

The best part is, I finally reformat and re-install XP. I go download SP3, install it and reboot, then go for the next round of updates from Microsoft. In their infinite wisdom (and in my hurry of not looking at the details of every of the 81 f&%king updates still needed after SP3) Microsoft let me download the upgrade to IE8, along with security patches for IE6, as well as a new driver for the Ethernet bridge and installed them all at once and COMPLETELY f&%ked up my networking, NO chance of getting back out to the net even after downgrading back to IE6 and reinstalling the drivers from the motherboard CD. WAY TO FUCKING GO MICROSOFT. I'm buying Win7 after work today, FML.

So if you magically hear audio ads playing on your comp and are having the volume go to zero constantly, move off your important files ASAP because you may not be able to get back at all after your next reboot. First virus ever that's truly forced me to reformat. Mother fuckers. No virus/malware warnings or anything when I got it, not even a hiccup on the system. Just straight up f&%ked."

Be careful peeps! Thanks for your attention!

good one.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
