Msn Messenger Plus It's a Virus

Msn-9.0plus.exe -- It's A Virus!

Do not click on that link!

There's been a lot of virii floating around the MSN Messenger Network lately. Some of them include links that pop up saying things like;

Hej, did you download the new MSN yet?
lol check out MSN Plus...it ownz!
Automessage : Download MSN Plus:
lol, this is awsome...
Want more msn emotions?
MSN 8.0 Beta released....get it here
Hej, wanna update your Messenger
dude, this is awesome... a must see!
lol I just updated my Messenger and I must say IT ROCKS!
Check this out mate, it roxxx

Never click on these links when someone sends you one. The typical result is a virus infection. In the case of the links above the result is a W32/Antix-A infection

Just another MSN virus.

This is not true. I've used Messenger Live Plus! for some time now and it contains no viruses, is stable and all of it's features. It's by far the best WLM Add On out there (even though it's not the only one I use as well as patches etc..)

yer same here, i've used MSN Plus for about two years aswell as about 30 of my contacts, NEVER has a virus been sent to me, those viruses come from download emoticon,background,animation packs. you can disable links being sent in MSN via the options box, if your that worried....

It actually doesn't have a Virus but it has a lot of adware/spyware which is extremely annoying (Pop-ups all the time)

MSG Plus Virus :p said...

They don't say MSG Plus (Addon) it's a virus. They say "Msn-9.0plus.exe" it's a virus. I hope you understand this guys.

I unistalled it straight away and i am now running 2 virus checks on my pc. I knew it was a virus because its not from the actual msn site. :( Now i got to warn all my friends which have it..

Windows Live Messenger PLUS! (commonly known as MSN PLUS!) is not a virus, and is an MSN addon, it only installs adware if you choose to give your support, so for those people who got popups, go to the uninstaller and remove the sponsor program. For new installations choose "Do Not give my support"

Windows Live Messenger PLUS! when downloaded from http://www.msgplus.net is safe.

What this article is saying (although it is not clear) is you need to watchout for the fake versions of Messenger PLUS! as these are viruses.

It only happens when u press the link from your friend with unreconized url..if u clicked it..u may download the virus..


Messenger Plus does not contain any virus..it's just that the link from ur friend that u get is not really what ur friend typed for u..

ITS NOT A VIRUS PEOPLE, WHEN YOU INSTALL IT YOU CAN CHOOSE TO INSTALL THE SPONSOR PROGRAM, WHICH SPONSORS MSG PLUS TO YOUR CONTACTS, JUST UNINSTALL AND WHEN INSTALLING CHOOSE, I REFUSE TO GIVE MY SUPPORT

It's not technically a virus, but runs numerous scripts that are identified as spyware and malware by many virus scanners. If you install it with F-Secure, your messenger will keep crashing because it's blocking the spyware/ad-ware popups associated with messenger plus. I'd reccommend not to use it because it might not be coded correctly and thus may open holes in your computer's security.

its not a virus its just wen sum 1 gives u a link 1st message thru msn it usually is, if this happens tell your friend to change their password
messenger plus is not a virus i use it some scanners say that their support software is, this is untrue but it has been classified as a virus.

I have had messenger plus for a year or 2, and my friend supported the sponser and got SOOOOO many viruses it wasn't funny, he had 2 rebuild his computer. I was lucky to elarn from his mistakes and i didn't support the sponser, i have been getting none of these links, no popups, nothing!! my computer isn't any slower after i installed it. but my brother and my dad seem to think it is, even though i have done my research...

hey random fact, 58% of small bussiness' are being hacked by people... 58%!!!! thats massive!
