Adware program hits instant message users

Please be aware of a program (named Osama Found) that is spreading itself via AOL and AOL Instant Messenger. Once installed, this program will send Instant Messages to everyone on your buddy list, asking them to download the same program.

While the company claims that this program is not a virus or Adware, I would recommend you treat it as such. Do not install any suspicious programs or click on links in suspicious instant messages.

See this Wired News story or Infoworld's story for more information.
