AIM virus WARNING!

One of my kids clicked on something a buddy sent them and now we have an AIM virus. It looks like a link any friend would send another friend, but it's a virus that will manifest itself to all your buddies and their buddies and on and on. The worst thing is it uses the trust of AIM friends So look out for this and don't click on anything anyone sends you unless you stop and ask your friend what it is and if they meant to send it!

I don't use AIM.

Have always preferred Yahoo or MSN.

It's been going around at my school...thankfully I haven't been infected by it (yet) but I know a lot of people who have.

Must be real bad in VA!

It hits young people especially hard because it starts out something like 'hey check out me acting stupid!' and people click on it thinking it's their friend. Buddies of mine didn't fall for it though, because the ones it went to were from a history board, and they thought that was a weird thing for me to say, so they just posted a bunch of ??? and 'huh?' until I was able to tell them don't click on it. While I don't AIM much, I am staying off for awhile because it automatically goes out even if you aren't trying to contact the person, and I don't want to take a chance on anyone getting it.

I'm on AIM all the time. I keep it on 24/7, and just put up an away message when I'm asleep. I always block those IMs when they come to me.
