Re: malicious software trying to install on my computer while surfing on DS 2x today.

Ok, are we any safer if we are site supporters with no pop-ups?

Re: malicious software trying to install on my computer while surfing on DS 2x today.

This happened to me this morning before 8am central. I'm running Safari on my Mac. Fortunately, it just closed the page down and not the program. I was able to continue surfing the net. I'll see when I get home if there was any damage. I'll have to run my ani-virus program. Can't remember what it is.

Macs typically don't get viruses or are targeted the same way Windows computers are, but let us know if you find anything. At the worst it will close your browser, which is exactly what happened.

If you have ads displaying on your pages.. you are in the same boat. If you don't have any ads, you are good

I have mostly been using firefox today with adblocker with no probs. I have been surfing some on explorer with the ads over the last hour or so with no probs.

Thanks for the updates. Our plan is to turn a group of ads on every 4-5 hours in hopes of isolating the group that is causing the issues.

We will be turning on the next group at 3PM EST.

Re: malicious software trying to install on my computer while surfing on DS 2x today.

It got me last night.
We use firefox and have no ads here. Weve got a really good add blocker.
We run Avast antivirus. My dh is a computer geek (builds - repairs -certified) and has all the safe guards in place and what not and we still got it.

I got one today using IE but our McAffee spotted it and contained it and DH was able to delete it.

All of the worms and spyware that my anti-virus caught were either quarantined or left alone. I need someone to tell me how to clean them since my computer says it can't when I click on "clean." When I got them, I was running IE but have symantec antivirus and also zone alarm (though the antivirus on that isn't on because of symantec).

I hope this is cleared up soon.
