    I received an email from the Apple company yesterday warning of a new Trojan program on social sites, that I want to share! The Trojan works like this: You get a message saying "Is this you in this video?" When you open it, it installs a program that wipes your hard drive AND transmits your personal info to the Trojan writer! It affects Mac os x AND IBM. Play safe! {HUGS}

    I recieved one a couple of years ago saying this is an album from Claudia, she is my cousin, they got her name of facebook and emailed me silly me downloaded it and yes it affected my computer, the best thing to do is disconnect the computer from the internet and get it cleaned, I couldn't use my virus software as it disabled it so it had to go to the computer dr,
    luckily they didn't get my info as I disconnected it from the internet then got it fixed

    I have a MacBook Pro and didn't get a message from Apple, but I will definitely call the local store tomorrow and check it out and in the meantime, if I get such a message won't open it. Thanks for the heads-up.
