thank you!!! i go on that site every day. i didn't know there was a virus. thank you thank you thank you.
Fuck this fucking world. I don't belong here. I belong.. with someone like me. Someone nice who actually has feelings. who tries not to hurt other people. That would be nice. actually once -n- awhile... i wonder if there is a part on the world that is like that. I don't think so, cause the way people treat me. I mean, i don't try to hurt people, but, y'all do. People never understand me. Never have. Never will. So  just run away.

opening an email when you've got no idea in hell who its from, then running an attachment. its like steping into a strangers car and agreeing to put a blindfold on

LoL this wasnt a virus on google it was just a worm using google to find e-mail addresses to send itself to. You can use it safely.

I am working full time now and prolly wont be around much for the next 6 months.

Well? Even if there WAS a virus on google, I really don't use it as my search engine. I use Yahoo. I WOULD use google ONLY if Yahoo starts to malfunction or something. ^^' So, I don't think I'll get across that virus anytime soon. Ja ne! ^_~

If you read the article, you would have noticed that not only did the virus not propogate through search engines, but that Yahoo was one of the four services affected.

Basically, follow the usual rules of not opening attachments from people you don't know and you'll be fine.  I have no idea how Darkesprit's computer was "attacked" by Google, because nothing about using Google or any other search engine would get your email address out unless you were plugging it in to a spyware search bar.

If that's so, how come this thread is titled "Virus on Google"? And by the way, I have NEVER been infected in any way, so I'll care until that happens, not that's a really big deal anyway, I know how to fix viruses. Ja ne.
