MSN virus

Security experts are warning users of the popular MSN Messenger to avoid downloading and installing BETA8WEBINSTALL.EXE, a file that has been circulating the web, posing as a new version of the messenger software. Bogus MSN Messinger 8 is in fact a virus. This virus, once installed, uses the Messenger client to send download links to all of an infected user's contacts, and connects the user's machine to a second "botnet" server, which could then could be used to install unauthorised software on the machine.
