There has come to attention of a lot of major sites of a new virus out.

the virus is called Bubbles but is also known by several other names...Ramex, Skipi and Pykspa.

Bubbles can get on to a computer in two different ways. Either by being downloaded directly from a third party website, or by a user receiving and opening a file disguised as a web link in third party messaging programs.

All have fun with the game ... be careful of what links you click and files you accept on funkypool and via msn etc.

Simply a worm used for recording keystrokes. There are many keyloggers around, this one is just spread through MSN Messaging etc...

If you are unfortunate enough to come across this virus on msn or wherever, simply post here and i will run you through a check to see if you are infact infected.

One quick tip... simply keep your anti-virus software up to date.

Sorry oli try re-reading my post. I stated i would post a dedicated free anti_malware thread, the thread you are quoting is freeware which is more general.

I will also include some tips and advice for staying safe.

Norton internet secuirty 2007 is a shambles a real let down this year's edition. i currently use avg full version. i had Norton internet secuirty for about 3 months and it didnt detect half the virus installed on my system that Norton aniti virus 1997 version did ( i downloaded the updates every 2 days ) so its AGV for me

I said that they have updated their database, i never said that they would detect it

Agreed AVG is a quality product

Back on track with the thread anyways.
AVG is very good. Not that I've ever really had to use it.
