I don't know if this has been posted yet, but there appears to be a another threat to forum profile builders, and since many folks build their own profile links and we have many newbies, I thought I would pass it along.

I have received 2 emails from SMF powered boards so far this morning with this message:

Dear, JackFlash!

Spam sending from your computer was detected.
We highly recommend you to check your computer and perform online virus check at our site immediately: http // remove-trojans. webcindario. com/online-scanner/
If you do not pass this test we will have to delete your account and forward a complaint to your ISP with attached log file (your IP address, etc.).
If you are setting up profiles, and you receive one of these, delete it. This is an only and attempt to put malware on your computer and is not a real message from anyone.

    I had heard about this on the grapevine, gotta hate these little buggers! Glad you posted this hear as a heads up to others.

    The only thing I would suggest is removing the URL and replacing it with xxxx just in case anyone actually tries to visit it regardless of your warning

    All the best

    Appreciate the warning, goatboy. Those things are worse than a bad penny.
    They keep on popping up!
