Default Hey watch out!

So I was playing Counter-Strike today and a friend IMd me saying "Hey.. I think I found your picture". I clicked the link and it said the download was a .pif file. Well I downloaded it just to see what a .pif looked like and I think it was a virus. It's a MS_DOS file, so be careful of this new virus thing!!

It has been out there for a couple months now. No big news. Once I saw it ended with a weird file type, I immediately knew not to click it. Minutes later, another friend messaged me with the same exact message (who, incidentally) was a friend of my other friend) and I knew it was a virus.

Well I'm "sorry" for giving you old information. I guess we shouldn't learn history right?

I hate history. I was just pointing it out, but thanks for telling us anyway. I'm sure some people benefitted from it; it wasjust a comment, nothing more. I believe it was on http://www.msn.com - their home page - for a while, alerting users.
