Having said that I've just done a scan with 'Spybot - search & destroy' and found a problem entry called 'Webtrends live' - have deleted it. I did a scan last night and it was all clear so this 'Webtrends' came in in the last 18 hours.

I love my PC and I'm one of those 'creative types'. I also have an Android phone and use Chrome. Haven't seen that warning on my end.

I have also seen this message but only over on "Hot Stuff".
I always ignore it and click "proceed anyway". No problems as yet.

[www.bbc.co.uk]


According to a Russian anti-virus firm.
I use a Mac since 1999, and lots of people that I know have a Mac.
Viruses till date that I know: almost zero. Porn sites seem to be risky though, let alone Windozers.

No OS is waterproof of course.

I'm not suggesting you buy anything you don't want, what I'm saying is be aware!
As you say, no OS is waterproof.

Mmm - that's a weird message. I've used Chrome since it launched and always access IORR through it; I've never the warning screen displayed above.

It's true, there is malware on this website.

I've been infected by it from day one and consequently it forces me to come back every day.

Oh help me please doctor I'm damaged.

If BV got hisself better prepared, he'd charge us to come on IORR, and then infect us with PayPalware!

The FBI recently uncovered and dismantled an internet fraud scheme that infected millions of computers worldwide The malware is known as “DNS Changer”. The virus prevents users' anti-virus software from functioning properly, hijacks the domain name system on infected systems, and directs the end user to sites where third parties receive advertising revenue. The FBI has created a temporary solution to help avoid service disruptions for those affected; however, it will only be in place until July 9, 2012. After this date, infected computers will be unable to connect to the internet.

also, password stealing trojan>
recent Java flaw exploited by the Flashback Trojan reveals that more than 550,000 Macs were affected in the U.S. and abroad.

I have had that warning sign quite often here over the last few days, for example it appears when I try to read this thread: " Complete Artwork for Stones Archive releases" on Hot Stuff.

I blame the Dutch ('lycos.nl') but on a serious note....should I take note of it?

That's one heckuvalotuv angst directed at one lowly retort!

I'm going to leave it as is, for posterity's sake! BTW, I've reinstated my original retort to better reflect the historical nature of the quip.

I am no expert on this, but over time I have noticed (I think) that sometimes "stuff" is turned on here, and sometimes it is not.... thus sometimes it alerts and sometimes it does not.... only bv knows for sure, and he is not commenting... but I trust him to not have too much stuff turned on here which is bad for our computers... I am guessing that he knows more about this "stuff" than most people... and I trust that he is trustworthy.
