I am a bebo-er, if that is what you call it. I love sharing photos and catching up with distant friends. But it nearly killed my laptop this week.
I got pfished.
No, there was no spicy rum involved and not a rod or fly to be seen. First I received an exciting invite from one of my friends to ‘click here to see me in costume’ . Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good fancy dress and so I was hooked.
I clicked which took me to a you tube link. Nothing at all untoward about that and so I clicked again. Not much happened and so I mumbled a little and thought it was a poor link.
My computer slowly stopped responding and I realised I had a problem. Then other people started to post messages warning about these Bebo messages.
argh. it was a worm.
Thankfully I managed to use my anti-virus and get it out. whew.
