MSN Virus in ASC Population

This seems to have made it onto the general ASC population. I figured I'd put out a warning to try to stop it before it goes too far.

There is a virus circulating via MSN that sends messages out to all your contacts that says:

***DO NOT FOLLOW THESE LINKS - REFERENCE ONLY***
"is that u on that photo his that u on that photo http://www.photogbase.com/pictures.php?photo656.jpg"

"t;is that u on that photo http://www.photogbase.com/pictures.php?photo656.jpg"
***DO NOT FOLLOW THESE LINKS - REFERENCE ONLY***

...or other information to that effect. Variations on spelling (better and worse) are evident. If infected, it will do it's best to send itself to all your contacts. Occationally it can come from a trusted source such as a friend. And, considering how all of us tend to be photo whores, it's more than likely you might try to open it.

DO NOT OPEN IT. Let's make sure I don't get a bunch of automated MSN messages from you guys telling me I'm in a picture somewhere.

Reinstalling MSN works?

I've been cutting the processes for a while and it seems to be gone temporarily, scanning for viruses and all...

Anyway, only one block because of it! Scarecow.

I got it from an old friend, thought it was me, opened it, got screwed over.
Guess it wasn't their fault though... except they could go around and tell everyone.

It attaches itself to your msn registry and everytime you open msn it infects your system even if you're removed the corrupted registry values. Either update your msn or re-instal.
