    Hi all,

    I have just received a message from a banned user so I contacted them via skype to see what the message was about and they claimed to have not sent it. Dont download the link like I did :(. Is this a scam ? Here is the message I got

    Hi, Im soon to be releasing a new pinterest bot and looking for beta testers.

    Iv read your post here and you seem to know what your doing, and i need people who can give me genuine feedback.

    Heres a link to download if your interested? Please use your BHW username for login so i can authorise the bot for you. Also It will only run on one ip at a time for the moment

    For helping out I will issue you with a full lifetime license once were out of beta.

    Thanks

    Xedricity


    Anybody had anything similar ?

    I might run some reverse engineering on this later. Something tells me this wasn´t a "bot".

    This is a virus, i downloaded it like a fool before he was banned. (he seemed pretty reputable and id just answered a programming question in the lounge).

    Get AVG and it will find it.

    Don't get too comfortable thinking AV is going to detect all threats. In my experience as a PC tech, most AV programs do not stop the newest threats to your PC. Your AV is only as good as your latest update and the bad guys are always 1 step ahead.

    Never you mind.
    When it comes to bad downloads I always tend to get myself a lovely big file dropper.

    One day I opened my C: Drive to find all 500GB was used and in the red. I sighed, made some tea, and set my PC back to factory settings for the 3rd time this year.

    Ahh, women. :rolleyes:

    I got the message, downloaded the file and i passed my AV to the rar, the AV couldn't find anything, I decompressed the file, started installation, during installation my AV found 4 different virus (trojans, worms, etc..), the AV aborted installation, i am using nod32

    I got the PM but i didn't open the link . I genuinely though he is looking for reviews for his new software. He had more then 300 posts on this forum.
