Whats with all this virus alert nonsense to my private message box? Has TLO been hacked or is it some form of sponsership. Is it just me who has this message?

This is the message signed by, The Forum Team


Dear, TbirdX!

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:


Followed by a link I'm not going to click and I suggest if anyone else has this they don't click it either.

Whats going on admins?

Ah, it seems the newest member to sign up is called The Forum Team.

So it's spam and this guy needs banning and any other action you can take as well.

Beware people, do not click the links sent to you.

It seems that all our user got a personal mail with a virus warning!
Don't open this link! Criminal elements try to get ppl on their sites to perform a virus check.
This check tells you that your pc is full of viruses and that you can only fix it with their own
anti virus program, which cost a lot of money! If you use their checking program it's normally
100 % sure that you will get viruses. So don't trust them! Use your own well known and
up to date anti virus program like Kaspersky, Gdata, Norton , Fprot or so on and never
trust mails like this!
