Currently have 50 mails in my Bebo inbox (all with differing subject lines) and that ain’t cause I’m so popular…
It’s a viral mail going through Bebo attempting to harvest your username and password by getting you to click on a link claiming to be a video.
If in doubt…
Does anyone still use Bebo for its original purpose, instead of just keeping their account there for their friends who are too lazy to get up and move to Facebook or some other alternative?

How do you get rid of the virus ??
what will the virus do to my pc ?
If anyone could let me know how to get rid of the virus then it would be much appreciated!
Does anyone know what the virus is going to do to my computer?
I downloaded Avast Home Edition anti-virus and found this helpful – 3 viruses were detected on my laptop after opening one of those dodgy emails!
The first thing you need to do is download a good antivirus application. The good news is you don’t necesarily have to pay for one. Avast! Home Edition antivirus is a very good antivirus and is available free for non commercial users from their website. Just google it. Also, AVG antivirus is another well respected free antivirus.
Once you’ve installed any antivirus application will normally ask you to restart your computer and it will schedule a boot time scan of your system. Hopefully this will get rid of it for you.
It would be useful also for you to contact your friends on Bebo and warn them that they might have received a private mail from yourself with a link to the same site, as the virus hijacks your address book in Bebo, this should help stop it spreading to all of the people you know who use Bebo.
Good luck guys
