Virus
 
I am getting hit with a virus when I visit the site. Anyone else have this problem? It has happened three times now. My virus protection catches it, but it's odd that it happens only when this site is open. It is attempting to install the Windows Security 2013 virus.

Checked my antivirus software history back to May and found no record of virus attack attempts on this site. :thumb:

not sure.. perhaps clean up your page history and see if that helps?

I am finding nothing with my AV program.

I have not heard any reports of a virus on the forum. If you could post the information your anti - virus gave you, we can review it. We would need a link that set off the software to locate the virus.

Also what browser are you using and is your Java software up to date? Often you will find Viruses hidden in ad's that attack outdated versions of Java.

I came across this years ago (of course it wasn't on the forum or 2013) but it was a virus disguised as a Windows update. It had the Windows' logo and Windows' security logo but it was not a Windows related product. I had to do a system reset to make it go away.

A good rule of thumb to anyone running a Windows OS, set your Windows updates to run automatically at a specific time and never allow updates that appear in a pop-up window.

Running MS Essentials (updates nightly) with Komodo firewall, no virus here and I'm logged on 24/7 or until I reboot. Bet its a false positive.

This website tested "Safe"

Recommendation:

That's probably a rogue software do not install it (possibly malware)
configured your machine to run Windows automatic updates.
Clear all history and cache on your browser(s).
Make sure your Antivirus and/or anti-malware softwares are up to date and run a complete scan.
These are just a few things to start off with but you may want to check your machine and verify that it hasn't been compromised.

You might already have a virus or malware...Whatever you do, do not let that file install or you will have some fun times ahead!
Look up Malwarebytes & Combofix. Those 2 apps should clean up anything you got.

I think this may be caused by an old java version. I am using IE and Microsoft security essentials. It hit again today when i came to the site and I noticed the java icon pop up. The file found the last three times was Win32/Sirefef.P.

Upgrade your Java and run a full sweep of your computer. There are a few suggestions above on how to do this. I wish I could help you more.

Good Luck,

I am also getting hit with a virus. It usually happens down near the 4 sale section. It reads ad click something or other. My virus scan blocks it each time.

What does the message your Anti Virus give you? Also does it give you a URL that it has blocked or detected? I would need the URL to get it removed from the forum.
