A major blog spam robot hit the “comment” box automatically on millions of blogs last night all around the world.
The text of the comment was as follows: Just wanted to pass some info along about a microsoft critical update that was in the news a couple days ago, you can google for info or I have provided a link below. I was sitting on my couch looking at my computer screen and noticed my mouse moving around and became irate, you guys be careful.
Naturally, there is no “critical update” and internet security specialists are advising that recipients DO NOT click on the links given. They will almost certainly send you to a virus download page.
