So, I was uploading pictures to Photobucket this evening, and I got slapped with a virus. It's called Win32/Cryptor, and it's nasty. When I log on to my desktop PC with my account, the computer locks up and I can't do anything. Luckily, I have a second account on the machine that I am able to use. I'm in the process of cleaning this bugger up. This is so not how I was planning to spend my evening. My hubby is working late, so I was looking forward to a night of Simming and blogging. GRRRRR!! On the bright side, my data appears to be safe, so that's good news for the Megahood.
I just want to put out a warning to other blog authors to be careful when using Photobucket (or really any website with third-party ads). One inadvertent click can bring your PC much pain. BTW, I'm writing this from my netbook which will no longer be used to edit photos on Photobucket!
