  • I don't read anything from any website. I delete all of those kinds of messages, and just log in to the actual site to see. =)

    Next time, read the sending address. That will 100% clue you in if it's virus or not.

  • I know there is a Facebook virus going around like this where it looks like a legit message, but it isn't. I haven't heard of one from CM. When you get messages like this, look at the sender's address and the body of the message. Usually, you can tell what is legit and what isn't because there will be subtle differences. Lastly, run a virus scan. Computers can lock up for a variety of reasons, not just viruses.
