That is scary! Was it from the forum directly, or a random member?

It wasn't from a member that I knew, and it was my fault for clicking it, but it came up like a pm and I clicked it automatically. Security Essentials caught it right away.

That's odd. Did it happen when you opened up the PM or did you click on something in the PM itself?

It happened right after I clicked to open the PM. The browser shut down and a security essentials screen came up that said it had quarantined a file. I wrote the name of it down before I deleted it. I also ran a couple of full scans to make sure it was gone. So far everything seems ok.

I've turned off the ability to PM for members who are not logged in so hopefully that will help stop any suspicious PMs from getting through.
