A few days ago I received a Private message" from a member and naturally opened it. It took me to a competition to win an Ipad or something so I deleted it realising it was SPAM. And now it seems opening it verified my email address and it has sent the same private message to ALL of my contacts, being the members of QBSA.
DO NOT OPEN the message, delete it, and do not reply to it, as this seems to then attach to your contacts. This morning I received 40 private messages plus a lot of questions from members asking me about it. I am sorry about this, but this is what the virus seems to do. I started to reply to them but realsised there were to many so sent a bulk email out and then put this warning on the blog.
If it continues I will have to change the email address of QBSA and attach you all as contacts to the new one, so stay tuned on that. ( I hope it just goes away if we just add it to our junk) but as it comes from our contacts, (being each other) this may be the only way to get rid of it. I cant answer anything about it as I am not sure where it came from or how it works, I am not that computer savvy.
