Don't worry, this is already resolved. Tom deleted the offending post. Every now and then spammers create fake accounts, and post forum messages - often reviving old threads. Something along the line of "Oh great, I like your work, have a look at what I have done here.". They simply do this to post links to bogus websites - which helps with search engine statistics (the more links the engines find on the web, the better the search engine rating). Or, like in this case, they posted a link to a file containing a virus - for obvious purposes.

 

These spammers use automated scripts to hijack forum threads and unfortunately they get better and better. There was recently a case where the spam post contained a really well related question (simply copied from another forum). And with AI (like chatGPT) getting better and better, we can expect a lot more of these issues to come...

Sadly this is true...  The scammers put a lot of work into ripping people off.  It's a shame that some of them don't harness all that energy into something productive instead of awful criminality.

Any of these wallpapers can be recreated by me in any resolution since they are all created with vectors, suggestions for new ones always welcome too, I have recreated many apple II magazine logos and and many companies that created Apple II products.
