Default Possibly another hack?

Got this in my email yesterday:

"graveknight has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - All my desktop shortcuts have this weird icon infront of it - in the Security/ forum of Computer Forums.

This thread is located at:
http://www.computerforums.org/security- /all-my-desktop-shortcuts-have-weird-icon-infront-106362-new/"

First I don't recall subscribing to this thread as I wouldn't have any interest in it.
When I clicked on the security link, I just get "Invalid Forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator."

What gives?

Change your subscription options to "Do not subscribe"

If you accidentally set it to subscribe, any thread you post in subscribes you to that thread.
Me: You'd think as the dominant species we wouldn't be so effing stupid.
J: We're just intelligent enough to be completely effing stupid.
