I got the above private message from someone unknown to me with a link that comes up as "under constuction" and have an idea that it is someone trying to send a virus through this forum. Lucky this is Linux.
Any comments?
Thanks
drum

Does this forum have any anti-spam measures? You can get phpbb mods which will detect spambot registrations and block them.

It's too bad that I was stupid and didn't see this thread before clicking that link...that site installed a few viruses on my other computer running windows. Great, it can't be removed :) Thanks for the viruses !
