If you get an IM message (even from someone you know) that reads something like this: LOOK! http://members.chello.nl/g.geurts1/handcuffs.XYZ. . . . Don’t click on it. If you do, you’ll need to clean it before rebooting because it adds an executable to your run-once list.
If you are skeptical of everything and don’t click, you are safe. I know a LOT of people who have been affected by this.
