malicious software trying to install on my computer while surfing on DS 2x today...
 
Who should I contact about this? I had to run a sweep of my anti-virus program to remove a trojan horse this morning, and I was just notified that "Mal/JSShell-B" was trying to install a few minutes ago. Having to remove possible remnants of it now. Both of these occurances happened while on the new posts area. I didn't even click a link!

Anyway, I don't know much about this stuff. I thought it was worth mentioning to an admin or a mod in case they should be aware of it! Thx!

UPDATE: This is what my antivirus software said about the malware:
"Category: Behavioral; Risk Rating: 5 (out of 5); Description: This item exhibited a behavior or characteristic commonly associated with spyware or other malware. It does not match a know definition, but could be an emerging threat not yet documented."

This may not be the same thing, but I had something similar happen to me this morning. I was looking at posts in the Mom and Dad area and my computer went nuts. I just kept giving me popup blocks and spyware block notices. I had to log off and shut down the comuter.

Thanks so much for your assistance! :goodvibes: I just haven't had it happen on any other sites (like I'm ever ON any other ones :giggle2: ), so it seemed to be linked here somehow. Hackers who don't have anything better to do than mess with us mamas! :lemmeathim:

I kept getting an attack just a little while ago when on DS. Then when I finally got it closed, it shut the whole Firefox down.

Off to clean up.

Someone posted this on the HC forums to and said she dare not come back.
And last night when I was on, my (new:cry: ) laptop went crazy while on DS and and shut down.
I scanned for viruses and spyware but luckily no problems.

I got a new computer just a couple days ago, and I thought that maybe vista wasn't working right with DS. Glad to know it's not an issue on my end.

I have spent the better part of today dealing with a "rat". Random access terminal. My computer internet browser was hijacked. PITB! We just installed new spyware/security software on all of our computers. My desktop is still being scanned. Be on the lookout mamas!

This happened to me yesterday, too. I had to reboot my computer and even turn off my modem for awhile. My Norton thing said it was coming from here. I think I got attacked 3 or 4 times.
