Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

Still going well here - thanks admins! I appreciate that this must be a real mess to sort out. FWIW, I installed Malwarebytes and had only 13 problems found, and they were mostly adware, not necessarily from DS. I think that my AVG Free caught the most malicious trojans before they did anything. So I can recommend AVG Free!

Alright, we have made NUMEROUS changes to try and pinpoint this MEAN malware.

We have gone as far as order 2 brand new servers and as of this morning DS now resides on the new setup. We have cleaned and recleaned, researched till we are blue in the face, and now we wait to see the outcome.

Please know we have spent thousands of dollars and done what we could to resolve this. We are VERY sorry for the inconvenience and the scare this has caused. DS will be safe once again!

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

Thanks for the hard work.

For the record, in the past I have had issues with DS and viruses.

My DH was doing work for a computer repair company, and they were having him recommend a free online program called AVG. It, in addition to Malwarebytes has protected my computer thus far and stopped whatever it was from getting in.

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

I'm so glad to hear of what's been done! I had to go AWOL the last couple days because my computer was so messed up. The MalwareBytes one found 10 trojans, but nothing since I stayed away from DS. I really don't want to stay away, this is the best place for my FSOT and I need every last dime I make around here.

Again, my heartfelt thanks and support for being there for us!

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

I seem to be having the virus issue now. Another window opens and says if I don't click ok, all my files will be destroyed and there is a fake my computer screen in the background. I've managed to escape it twice. It's making me really nervous to be here. I've downlaoded the malwarebytes and I'm planning on downloading the avg shortly.

Sorry to hear you are having issues now. Do you have any screen shots that could help us out further? At this point no one should be having any issues with the site.

Also let us know when you install AVG and if you need any help.

Thanks
John

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

Just for the record, I visit DS several times a day on 3 different computers. Even though I saw the suspicious malware thing a 2 or 3 times at least two weeks ago, I've seen nothing since. Also FTR, when I did see it, I simply closed out the window through the task manager. Since everyone is still talking about these issues, I thought I'd run scans on all of the computers today. The one I was using when I saw the malware was infected with some videoegg adware and Trojan.FakeAlert. I'm not sure if that is the one from DS but it didn't cause any noticeable issues. It has been ages since I've done a scan on it so it's possible it's been on there for a while. The other two computers are clean.
