Virus here on WF
 
Not sure if anyone else has this problem, but I constantly get a virus pop up on the forum. Its no big deal I guess. My virus protection catches it, but I was wondering haw many people aren't catching it. I tried to figure out how to notify the mods so maybe they could stop it, but no luck there. Below is what I get in my pop up.



A virus or unwanted program:
'HEUR/HTML.Malware' was found in file
"\AC_Chrysler_Tier1_728x90_Auto_041910_r
01(1).swf'.

I've had no problems, but will notify the Admins.

Thank you. Like I said, it gets caught by my virus program, so its not that big a deal, but when it gets caught, my program scans my whole system. Is just aggrevating.

Thanks for the report - this looks like it might be a rogue ad. We'll look into this.

- Does your virus program tell you anything about the virus?
- Does it happen on every page load or just every so often?
- Where are you currently located?
