Myspace.com Informative - My space Has Been Invaded.
Hello, I did not file this under complaint because I cannot say for sure I got a virus from Myspace. I was on the Myspace site when this happened.
I joined Myspace at my daughters request so we could keep in touch. And even more so, to play poker on the site as she thinks she can take all my chips.
Here is what I do know.
It's rare that I go on the site. A few days ago I did sign in. Went to the poker site on Myspace. Got my free chips and played a few hands. Lost some chips ( not to my daughter). And decided to purchase some chips. They have an option to have the fee charged to your cell phone. I thought, ok, sounds quick. I pushed the button to charge my phone $9.99 For something like 150,000 chips. Entered the phone number and hit order. It was loading. It said I would get a text... About then I received a phone call from a friend. We talked for over 20 minutes. I noticed the site was still loading / processing this whole time. As I was facing the screen it disappeared and a different screen popped up and a loading bar loaded before I could do anything. Somewhere around 65 viruses or 1 virus with 65 issues infected my computer. I never received a text.....
I have avg virus protection. It had been updated.
I have malawarebytes protection as well as my ips protection and windows security center protection.
I almost instantly did a scan of the entire system and wow. Loaded with viruses.
Locked viruses. And others
after I shut down the computer and tried to reboot the system I saw, error message, .Missing files or corrupt files.
I need to know if this is something anyone has heard of before. Or was it just my luck. I don't know the name of the company that Myspace has handle the poker chip orders and I am currently updating all the virus protection on this back up computer. I don't dare try to find out. If you know the name please let me know.
Thank you for reading my review.
