    Default About friendpics.info

    I've tested this web-site "friendpics.info" with my discarded live messenger account...I think this is a spam site...

    A very simple test method ,
    I log-in to my normal account & the discarded account simultaneously. Then I fill in the information that the site need...and press the log-in button.
    After that, my discarded account forcly log-out, and in the other hand, I received a message from the discarded account on my normal account.
    The message will generate according to the victims log-in name, e.g., garbage@live.com -> garbage.friendpics.info

    I don't know if it is enough to proof that's a hazardous site.
    If someone can investigate more, please let me know the result

    Hi there,

    One can add items to the Hosts File:
    Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a HostsFile

    Open "RUN" and type in one of the following as appropiate:
    Windows Vista = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    Win 98/ME = C:\WINDOWS

    Open the Hosts File (Spybot-S&D's or whichever one you use) in notepad to add an item to the list and save.

    However it is best to practice safe surfing and not click on links sent via social networking sites and IM.

    MSN is well known as a source of infection by people clicking on links they believe are sent from buddies, when their buddies account may already be compromised.

    Cheers.
