malware and spyware

not a problem,
people put links on anything,
for malware and spyware,
I want to catch one of these people,
one time,
and break all the joints in the fingers,
of both hands,
with a pair of vise grips

Life consists of:
What you want.
What you need.
What you deserve.
What you end up with.
What you do with what you get.

Guys,
Sorry. Windows Live Mail shut me down last night for sending too many messages. Something got into my address book. Could have come on any number of innocent pix even. You know like the cute ones people send. My McAfee is always on, so after I changed my password, I ran a full scan: no malware at all. Amazing how clever viagra sellers are....

Guys,

Yes, sorry, I was hacked and it looks like it was done from the Yahoo group site; so I changed my Yahoo password, and changed my regular email pass word because Windows Live Mail detected the incursion even before I did. A very bright buddy who understands how this works, claims it’s easier for the bad guys to hack you once your stuff is up in one of the many clouds; and mine is. Not to mention Facebook; but the thieves got my Yahoo address too, and its only on my Yahoo profile. I guess we just have to change passwords more frequently. I hope to hell I’m still not generating garbage; I have McAfee on all the time with automatic updates and no malware was detected.

Bernie,

Two more spam messages were generated 5 hours after this message in this group and one was generated in the repower and regear group. All have been deleted before they were posted to the group. In the recent batch of spam it was the owners e-mail password that had been compromised, not the Yahoo groups password. Bernie check again your msn.com e-mail account for these sent messages. You may need to change your msn.com password again. It may have to be 'stronger'.
