    Today I write this message to spread awareness of an event that occurred earlier this week.
    A few days ago we had a bot register on the forum (I know right?) And post a few threads, While this itself isn't a drama we would start a thread over, this bot did include a few links in every posts.
    And again, I know the risky click of the day is fun and all but we had a staff member open these links in a VM and it immediately reported multiple viruses on the system.
    Therefore I want to make it clear that if such suspicious links appear in either threads or shoutbox:
    Please do not open the links on your system as they will bring malware onto your system.
    Instead report them to me (or other UA members) so we can dispose of them.


    TL;DR : Bot on forums, Malware links, Don't click, Do report.

    You don't want your pc to become a botnet whore. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Hey man, Russian girls are pretty hot. Are the local hotties in my area worth the viruses? Who knows?

    lol I believe my computers strong enough. I click on all the links I can just to prove my computer is powerful

    I’m not clicking on your name, could be an IP phisher
