    If you've used aol instant messenger, you've probably gotten an im from someone with an infected computer. I've seen ones that pause and ones that do other things, but this one was actually convincing for a second till I checked. Read it below:

    So basically, it ims you with a sophisticated "yoo" makes it seem real, then waits for me to respond. After that it says "whats up" just like real person would. I then mention the word "virus" because I know I always get them from this girl. It then assuages my concern by saying it's not a virus. And then sends the link and signs off. I am impressed by the sophistication of this.

    Is this impressive to anyone else or am I just ignorant?

    I'm impressed by way you misspell 'sophisticated':p

    No but seriously, girls don't say "yooo" like that.

    looks like it expected you to ask whether it was a virus after it dropped the link. but since you said it immediately, the response it gave makes no sense (mentions a phone out of nowhere) lol

    well, i don't do work with aim viruses and the ones that typically contact me are super obvious about being fake...

    thanks for noticing, and yeah some of the girls i know do talk like that...

    I guess it's nothing special then...

    This same setup is all over yahoo, i think what you meant to say is this will probably catch lots of carefree average users the first time because it's not the common whoring spam from some random user you don't know.

    Yeah pretty much, I mean I've never clicked on one of those links before, but I suspect that something like this definitely gets a higher click rate. Do you think the website is an advertisement or does it just install the virus again (if its to the site, where do you think they get a virus like that)?
