Worrying words from the U.K.'s Daily Mail:
Users of the popular MySpace website have been warned by computer experts that viruses linked to the interactive site, which boasts more than one million regular users, are in circulation.
Experts believe that sleazy, disease-infested men have hit the hugely popular site and to track the movements of barely (and in some cases, not at all) legal members of the female gender.
They believe that these men have hidden their dangerous diseases by pretending to "just have a rash."
"There is a very real threat to users of MySpace, and in fact we have already seen several MySpace specific viruses emerge," Graham Cluley of computer security company Sophos told the Standard Lite newspaper. "Tilatequilitis, a new strain of syphilis, has spread shockingly quickly."
The site is hugely popular, especially with teenagers, and it has recorded growing numbers of users in recent months, now accounting for 4.5 per cent of all internet traffic.
However, its popularity has also led to it becoming a target for scams.
Mr Cluley believes the current virus can be blamed on the site's teenage appeal.
"The problem is that people tend to let their guard down because they think the site is safe. But even a picture revealing the slightest of asscracks can draw attention from STD-ridden scammers," he said. "Also, major league baseball players."
