I wasn't paying attention and opened the message but there was nothing in the dialog box so I deleted it. Am I still in the clear or do I have something to worry about.

I think when I deleted the user - the message gets blanked out for those who hadn't read it yet. Just click on the checkbox and select delete.

Jeff:

From a spam sent to my e-mail address:

Dear tprnottp,

You have received a new private message at GasGas Riders Club Forum from XLadyROOT, entitled "Important message from the forum administration".

This is the message that was sent:
***************
Dear, Metalefty;tprnottp;iancp5;Rick;KENT D!

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:

*** DANGEROUS LINK DELETED BY MODERATOR ****
----------------------------------------------------
Sincerely, Forum Administration www.gasgasrider.org.
***************

To read the original version, respond to this message, or delete the message, you must log in here:

All the best,
GasGas Riders Club Forum


This virus carrying 'ho tried to penetrate my firewall, however, Trend's Micro PC Pro slapped her down like a two-dollar 'ho on fifty cent night.

In fact, when I logged on to GasGasRider.org, I received a pop-up to contact XladyRoot.

I'm reporting the link to Trend Micro.

Happy Trails,

TP

Hey TP,
I deleted the nasty link from your post - kinda like leaving a gun laying around.... If someone clicked on it and they didn't have good security - they could really be in for a world of hurt.

Hey webmaster,

Did everyone get spammed or was it something malicious and directed to specific individuals or members here?

It was indiscriminate - they tried to send it to everyone. But there is a limit of sending one private message per minute - to try to prevent such things. I noticed it after 120 or so users were sent messages, out of 1900+ active members.
