Yeah. It's a virus. Although, almost all toolbars are viruses.

These messages were going around a while ago. If you want to do something to make your browser more like Newgrounds, you can get the Newgrounds Classic Firefox theme instead.

If something seems fishy on the internet, it probably is. It's common sense, just block him/her and go on with your day.

My account is always online. WHERE THE FUCK IS MY MESSAGE!

On a serious note: never trust people with shady profiles (sign up date 1+ year ago). they're probably hacked or some shit.

FemmeDetail and I-love-green-balls are comfirmed as spammers of the message as of 8 hours ago.


I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

I saw FemmeDetail post on the BBS yesterday. Fuck guys, they're hacking the accounts and using them to send out MORE spam PMs. You better check yo'self befo' you wreck yo'self.

Odd question...

Can someone PM me the link that's being sent to you. I did have a copy, but it appears the account was deleted.

If you're thinking "I bet someone has already sent him the link already" you'd be wrong.

Surely one of you fine chaps has a copy.

Oh lawdy

Well, just a quick update

1) Once executed, this file loops a swf of Nick Berg's beheading (old school shit, son) and will continue to loop infinitely; even after restart . I ran a packet sniffer, but couldn't see anything untoward (it does "call home" in order to download the "head.swf", so there is probably something else going on).

I have set something up, so we will see. Nothing that immediately screams account hijacking.
2) This is my favourite part, a quick Google search found the source code on pastebin. Nice.

Link to the source code? I want to see what it does.

Maybe you could ask Wade to give you back your accounts.

Good. I'd hate to see you lose your main account.
