My Mood:
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."
