Hi Everyone,

Just a day ago whenever I went to log in on on Pidgin it would require me to verify a SSL certificate (which I wasn't sure about n hence I asked my friend who also uses linux to help me match the SSL footprint)...which did n hence I accepted the certificates for both hotmail n gmail....

Now
I just jot this message in one of the pidgin IM windows....it goes something like this:

(11:50:16 PM) nevazysyk@hotmail.com: http://www.SexySinglez.com SEX PARTNER ZIP CODE SEARCH

0277

The funniest thing is that the hotmail address is NOT on my buddy list!!!!!

So my question is:
Is this some kind of virus?
and Is my computer compromised??

Thanks in Advance I'm one of those paranoid Noobs who started using Ubuntu because of paranoia surrounding Windows
