I think I got a fairly clever scam/trojan/something attack.

SilverKnife sent me a message addressed to someone else and quickly wrote another saying opps, ignore that. But the original message happened to include a link to a faster miner he knows about.

Maybe it's harmless (I doubt) but may as well take this time to give a general warning.

Don't run code from strangers, especially Bitcoin strangers, they know you've got a wallet.

edit: And it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to wait until like 24hrs after a members 5th post or something to let them PM.

1) Use pools like BTCGuild that let you create secondary accounts (wokrers) that utilize passwords that are different than your primary account.
2) Run miners in a sandbox using Sandboxie so that your computer can isolate anything the program does.
3) Store your BitCoins in an encrypted location.  There's a guide somewhere in the "New to Bitcoin" thread.

What the hell? I can't lock my own thread and I can't report it to a moderator? I'm going to Bitcoinforums.net.

Someone please report this for lock.

You can lock your own threads. The link is near the bottom of the page.

The person sending those PMs has already been banned.
