Well, the only way to get a virus is to open an .exe file that is the virus program, in your computer. They usually come as email attachments. To get one through a chat program like Messenger, you would have to accept a file transfer and then open the file. The warning sounds like BS to me.
To be on the safe side, get good anti-virus software, like Norton, and keep it up to date, and always running.
