Hi,
An instant message was sent to me by a colleage which contains the text "OMG, Is this really you".
It contained a link, and I inadvertantly clicked on the link.
 
What happened then was that my PIDGIN program seemed to automatcially send this same message to everyone in my contacst list, I also noticed that the message or link was not always the same, see below for some examples;
 
 
rofl THIS ISN'T YOUR PICTURE RIGHT? HTTP://BIT.LY/XHtCqe?J391PRB27VK93RA 
omg IS THIS REALLY YOUR PIC? HTTP://BIT.LY/a5PPhG?887754714W54V46 
OMG this isn't your photo right? http://bit.ly/wDmBYw?kayl082cp4bm9r2 
LOL this isn't your pic right? http://bit.ly/yDq89I?0mr578253m33ssm 
 
I have tried to remove this sing Mcaffee but with no luck, I have also unintalled and re-installed PIDGIN and still no result.
Even when my status is offline, PIDGIN still trys to open my contact list but it cannot get past that status.
Can you tell me how I can find and remeove this virus?
Thx,
Philip
