But he says I have a virus! I'd better visit that site, just to be sure. I'll report back shortly. :D

For the record, the spam isn't coming from any GUA member. its coming from an exploit in the verification system. Users awaiting verification can send private messages to people and bots are exploiting this. I have shut off the ability for non confirmed users to send PM's and I think we are closer to shutting this down. Thanks for your help in this matter.

Seems, that it doesn't work. New Spam-PM today. Shut it off or kick it off.
