Passing it on  

Not sure if it's real....but it's worth letting folks know just in case...

So, apparently there is a scam going around the LJcoms with a virus attached. Beware. If you see a post like the below, DO NOT CLICK THE LINKS!!!! Apparently, it is not only infecting people, but deleting the coms as well once it takes control of someones LJ. It will delete all posts and give link to viruses and spyware.

Dear friends, I, as the maintainer of this community, have to inform you that due to recent tragic events, I've decided to stop using LJ as a platform for my community (and to remove everything that was posted here before). From now on, all new materials should be posted to the New community that I've recently created, as for old posts, you will find them here.

A good, simple way to defend against these sorts of hacks is to enable a security question (and to pick an answer that doesn't make sense), and to delete any old email addresses from your account info, as is detailed in this post: http://copperbadge.livejournal.com/2714949.html.
