You don't want to download MSN Messenger beta 8


There is no MSN Messenger 8 yet. Not in public beta anyway. However, there's a new virus going around pretending to be "MSN Messenger 8 Working BETA". There's two ways to catch it. First, by downloading it from a fake site where it has been supposedly "leaked". If you download and run BETA8WEBINSTALL.EXE from that site, you won't get a new chat client. Instead, your existing MSN Messenger will start to send download links to everyone in your contact list. It also connects your machine to a botnet server. F-Secure : News from the Lab
