    I would use mIRC but most of the people I chat with don't know much about computers/irc so I just use AIM.

    Actually no I disagree... but I guess thats personal choice but anyways with mIRC your more likely to find a larger range of targets for example the 30 or so peaple who enjoy chating and downloading in #warez. And with random peaple jumping in and out of channel you'll have even more & more targets. These targets move to other IRC networks & channels then with more peaple joining in on the fun thus the cycle of stupidity begins. Meanwhile IM is usually limited to some form of buddy lists.

    I agree with |The|Specialist, with IRC. Everyone can know your IP, Dns and stuff.. With Instant Message, it's alot harder to get those information that most script kiddie are decourage!

    --|| VIRUS ALERT : A new virus is spreading via AIM Profile links.. Read More ||--
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Do NOT click on links that say something like "whoaa look at what i found click here" or "I can't believe I found %n's Picture"

    There appears to be a new virus/worm/spyware that is spreading via AIM profile links.

    Apparently, malicious code is being placed on computer systems when victims visit either realphx.com or talkstocks.net (there may also be other domains).

    This code is executed either when a visitor OKs at the prompt or automatically if the visitor has not patched Internet Explorer for known vulnerabilities (see Windows Update to patch your system).

    Once the victim has been infected, their AIM profile will be changed to reflect only a link to one of the above mentioned sites with the text description as "Whoaa...look at what I found, click here" (there may also be other text descriptions). If the victim attempts to reset their profile, the link will reappear after a reboot or restart of AIM.

    Due to variations of the virus/worm/spyware it may take a little work to completely clean it from your system.

    Below are some links to removal tools we found (but did not test) followed by some manual instructions that were posted on other sites:

    Actually I was talking about malware... about how mIRC worms are common, easy to make, & there are usually more peaple in IRC than some dumb contacts list. Also about info... why would it be so hard when aww hell I mean you're talking to the peaple. 9 outta 10 if you find some bozo who is dumb enought you can usually tell them to open command promt, tell them your going to teach them "neat PC tricks..."

    LOL...you know something , this idiot was messing with my GF's head creating a new SN talking weird to her. I created another name such as 'h0tgrl" and talked to him. I already had the IP of a person whom I suspected of being the idiot using IMCHAOS. I made the Idiot think i was going to send him a pic of me and I wanted to meet him so he glady opened a dc. U know the rest

    Har Har. *Wags Finger* Improper use of knowledge. The police and such entities are there for that purpose. Although a little payback never hurts.

    -Cheers-

    PS: I'm just learning about DoS and DDoS attacks, so if you wanna pass the IP this way I "practice"

    I never said I Ddosed him or did anything to him. lol..i just called him, told him i knew it was him, Punched him in the face the next day and that was the end of it. I dont like to crash pple's comps for silly things. They could have vital information in there which could really get them in trouble, ex: saved copy of his senior project due tomorrow at 8 AM. I dont want him to fail college because he's an idiot sometimes . I'm a kind and frienly person
