Hi5 spyware doing the rounds

Please beware of the Hi5 network that is doing the rounds, i got caught out (stop laughing), i recieved an e-mail from a friend inviting me to join, like a fool i did. didnt even think when it asked for my hotmail password.....just slapped it in.

next i know all my hotmail contacts are invited to join Hi5 supposedly by me (i did not send any e-mail invites or give permission for the program to do so. lesson learnt by me again.

hopefully people who read this might help to stop the spread of this spyware prog if it isnt too late, its too late for me but maybe not for you.

thanks folks
