ha ha joke--cautiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
My sweetie just emailed me that she has learned that the ha ha "joke", which appears to be porno, is in fact a virus. She said that we probably won't be affected, since we're on a Mac, but to dump it immediately anyway.
Sorry I don't know more about it. Has anyone had any problems?
I DO know that I've been having trouble with my email program ever since I got back from a month long trip, and that's about the time I first saw this "joke"; I don't know if it's more than a coincidence, though. We also had a HUGE amount of email to download; maybe the computer had indigestion...

I have free virus software from the web .AVG I know nothing about mac so don't know if it will help.
