Heads Up:: Do Not Download!

Hello all! I recently received word from a friend of mine that someone got the entire Twilight movie on tape at a special screening and had posted it to the intarwebs. The last time I heard something like this was a supposed early copy of Breaking Dawn that my cousin downloaded and ended up getting a horrible virus that crashed her computer.  Fearful of a repeat, I did some research myself, I found the supposed 'link' and asked my friend to scan it.

Three reasons not to download:

1. IT'S NOT THE MOVIE. I REPEAT, IT'S NOT THE MOVIE.

2. There is a virus attached. The exact make and model, we weren't able to figure out but it had a few similar 'code lines' (computer-geek-speak is not a language I'm at home with) as the Love Bug virus.

3. One of the comments below the link included some helpful warnings that indicated if you go past the virus, spyware, tracking ware and adware that are next to impossible to boot will follow shortly after.


I found this link last night before bed and since checking this morning, it has been taken down along with similar links with similar titles. The website (a low-quality torrent site) does very infrequent checks of it's links but given that the thing had close to 150 downloads when I saw it (!!!!!!), there was probably a large amount of complaints being issued. I'm not a member of many websites for Twilight so if you hear something someplace else about a download of the film, (1) that's illegal and (2) please post up this information. I don't want people to lose computers over RPattz JBF hair.

-Bella
