Yes, thanks for the warning. I actually received this message last week and reported it to etworm. Thankfully I didnt click on the virus link. :eek:

It's good practice to be suspicious of any messages with links.

Just a suggestion to etworm, take the hyperlink of the virus link in your warning message as some may unwittingly click on it if they dont read the warning properly.

cheers :cool:

Wow - thanks for the warning! Thankfully I didn;t get one and hopefully now you put the warning out they won't try it again. Can you not delete whoever it is posting them?? Why do people do things like this - I can never understand :confused: I don't get mean people - or people who just want to cause damage or upset to a stranger for no reason. Anyway - well caught and thanks again for the warning. You rock ;)

Pitty there was no warning for me when i got this spam message:confused: I hit the link and bang# Computer went haywire. The f***king job i had sorting things out was a nightmare. How can movie.cc let this happen???... I sent a pm to admin about this and got another spam message in return:confused:. Sent pm again and another spam message till i had 3or4, i just kept on deleting them and there gone now. Hav'ent recieve any more so far""touch wood"" but would it have killed to reply to my pm, just to reassure me or even to apologize for the inconvenience :mad:I'v giving alot of money to this site to watch movies and what do i get in return>(CRAP)<....with a CAPATIL.........................And i'll thank you for that.
