    SO the other day, i get this weird message over myspace. It was a message saying "hi, check out my friends profile" . . . so i did. It ended up being a weird 'add' button for a friend - i hit cancle as not to add a total stranger, but the damage still got done.

    Needless to say, somehow my account got all skrewed up. I KNOW 4 of my friends (people i know and talk to all the time) no longer show up as being my friends (my friend count has dropped by 4). Whats also weird is that i still show up in these peoples' top 8 selections and am unable to add them as friends. My friend count also does not increase when i accept friend requests either.

    Also, if i try to edit my profile i get re-directed to this other weird myspace profile http://editprofile.myspace.com/aboutme . I can still edit my profile but i have to use safe mode.

    I emailed myspace support and they told me to just use the firefox browser and everything would be fine (i already use firefox - asshats).

    You guys know anything about this?

    you installed an active X control. the cancel button was triggered to an install of some malware.

    ie sucks.

    stop using it.


    you clicked the button.


    run an adaware/spybot crap

    sounds like some outside program, maybe javascript?
    But that might explain a few people i know that had similar problems

    you didin't mention that..... lol

    then you didn't install an active X control. firefox would prompt you for the install. even if it is on button command.

    myspace is a pice of shit. really. its the worst code ever coded. they have tables 8 levels deep on some shit. its so stupid. its down or slow all the time.... they are always fixing something....
    i blame them.

    I'd also change your password and some info there so the password cannot be reset.

    Myspace is terminally slow. If only they ran with the flawless speed at which HS runs... :ph34r:

    Ressurection'ed to agree, and say it was most likely (99%) Javascript.
    They try to filter it but do a bad job, and things are bypassed...
    The last worm was the Samy worm thing, which was done in AJAX/xmlhttp socketing, this is still completely possible, and may have been how it sent the form actions to your profile to reset/delete etc.
    Eye haxxed myspace omgh!
