    A new adware threat called,"Buddy Links" is rapidly spreading across the network
    of AOL instantmessenger users.Aravving with the text" check
    this out", the mesage usually includes a link called "osama capture.php",
    which can activate a a download for a game application. The license agreement for
    this application inclues a buried text seeking consent
    to "permit the automatic sending of advertising messages originating from your
    Computer to your contact or 'buddy' list...", If you accept and install the game, this
    application will send advertising to everyone on you buddy list.. :evil: :evil:

    Edit: Goddamnit, I didn't even read the post right the first time. So I mistakenly spammed. :grr:
    Would have helped if it said AIM users, not AOL. :roll:

    AOL is a company, it is a *cough* service and it is an application.
    In fact, it is several applications. Some of which include some form of networking, browsing, email and instant messaging.

    I have no fondness for AOL - but it does have a place in this part of the forum, if it has a place anywhere in this forum.

    For those using AOL - good work #Hashx#!
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    I'll stick with Trillian. It handles all the main IM clients at the same time with a single easy-to-use interface.
