I got several emails last night which "appeared" to be from my web hosting company advising that my account was going to be closed. So I downloaded the file (duh) and it disabled my firewall. I noticed this right away so got offline and rebooted the PC and the firewall was there but completely not functioning so never went back online but the computer kept telling me that I or a program is attempting to contact irc.blackcard.com so I just finsihed rebooting the PC. Checked with my server and of course, I'm not in trouble for anything my accounts are fine... whew!
Y'all be careful out there online!
(in defense of my adled brain, I'd just gotten off 14 hour shift at the junk mail factory...)
