    HALP

    I accidentally clicked a virus link in MSN. The convo was as follows:
    Friend: "Hey!"
    Me: "Hey, wats up?"
    Friend: "I just took an IQ test and got 128!"
    Me: "Oh cool"
    Friend: "Go to this link: adfasdfadfsfa.com and try it yourself!"
    Me: "Cool virus"

    Then while copying the text MSN decided to open the link in firefox. IT was only open for a second, i closed the page instantly. Running virus scans atm, should i do anything else? I fear it mighta been a phisher.

    For one thing you should fix the MSN spreader problem.

    That kind of virus don't do anything to your PC.
    They only annoy people every 5 mins.
    Improve and contribute to the LoL section, anything you do could save it.

    It's probably just a phisher, I doubt you really downloaded anything (if you really closed it that fast).
    But, it's better to be safe than to be sorry. I'd go ahead and scan for all that shit. Then, try to do a system restore if you're REALLY paranoid.

    true, i just don't see how the webpage can steal your MSN info. I get if it asks you to login with your MSN stuff but just visiting the site shouldnt put me at risk, should it?
