MyDailyFlog "Scam"
« on: Thursday, August 06, 2009. 10:32:10 AM. »
I received an email from a friend thru MyDailyFlog, saying she uploaded a picture she wanted me to see.  I went to the site and had to join.  When I did, they hijacked my email list and sent mails to everyone saying I had uploaded a pic and wanted people to see it.

I Didn't upload any pics, and will be unjoining the site.

Just so anyone in my list knows not to join unless they want to.

Grumpy, sorry to hear you fell victim to this crap.  Be sure to visit the McAfee or Symantec sites to ensure that was the worst they did to your PC.  I bet they did more than steal your email addresses.

if they stole your email addresses they have a file on your computer is a good guess.

an email trick is this:
in your address book make a contact as AAAAA@AAA.com - it will be the 1st in your address book. If a file on your computer sends out email using your address book you will receive a bounce stating there is no such email address as AAAAA@AAA.com - then you know you have been compromised but then again a good virus program is always best.

 :cry: I didn't get an E-mail about Grumpy's picture and I'm pretty sure I'm on his list.
 :teeth: Maybe all this malware, spyware, and virus stuff I'm running DOES work :idea:
Listen to the jingle the rumble and the roar.
