    Porno ?virus?

    The other day I was surfing around and downloaded what I thought was .mpeg (porno style). As a habit, I put it into my down load file, and forgot about it. Today, after down loading a prog, I wanted, I found it and just to see what I had downloaded(after scanning it with Mcafee). The bloody thing attempted to access the internet and I assume down load something else. My firewall stopped it. It also replicated itself to my program files and put a shortcut on my desktop.
    I deleted it, and ran a complete scan on the system, but found nothing.
    Not considering this to be a real security question, but more of a 'stupid move' one, I put this here.
    Anyone know anything about a prog like this.

    Well, I hope you learned your lesson

    It's not really a virus, just an annoying program. My guess is that it was going to access the internet (or often, programs like this will simply place an extremely long-distance call) to connect to another host, yes, to download something else, the actual porn show (usually). But here's the catch: now is the time that you have to pay. Once connected, in order to download the images, you'll be prompted for a CC#. And as for the replications: The more copies you have, the more likely you'll give in and pay... or so thinks the porn industry.

    *sigh* Such high-tech sin.
    I know you\'re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you\'re afraid. You\'re afraid of us. You\'re afraid of change. I don\'t know the future. I didn\'t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it\'s going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, and then I\'m going to show these people what you don\'t want them to see. I\'m going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

    Thanks PhirePhreak
    As I said it was a 'stupid move' type thing.....lol. My only concern was, that I had never seen anything like that replicate itself before.
