If you get a Skype message that says "lol is this your new profile pic?" don't click the link. It auto downloads a Trojan. It's happened toa Skype group I'm with.

Cue Weird Al's song.

That's right I like guns and ponies. Problem cocksuckers?

To keep this from getting out of hand: no operating system is genuinely superior. They all have points strong and weak that make them relatively the same when compared.

Macs function better than you think. To each their own, though.

Thanks for the warning, one of my friends got this and it linked me too. I did not click it thankfully. I thought somthing was wrong.

As for the poster trying to flame. Skype is a preferable alternative to AIM or YIM. AIm refuses to work properly with my computer anymore, so it's skype or Mirc for me.

Thanks for the warning but... someone took my place... :(

Coincidentally, I just wrote and compiled a trojan just for Skype & Paltalk 3 hours ago...

why?

Yep, this thread has just about every shade of garbage imaginable.

Newgrounds doesn't have many people dumb enough to click random links from users we've never heard of. You'd be better off warning more computer illiterate or elderly people who would be more likely to click it.
