Software costs money and I wonder how much traffic is around here anymore.

----

After a long time of not visiting at all, suddenly I am getting instant messages that all say-

" A virus alert was noticed on your computer.
We highly recommend you to check your computer and perform online virus check at our site immediately: hXXp://antivirus.effectmeds.com "

,,,,,,Or maybe the board has not been hacked?

I guess this is the message you all got, right?

It must be fake as the account sending it to me has made no posts on this board.
