Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

Norton (or Symantec) has become almost useless against any kind of malicious software. The best stuff out there right now are free, open source applications. I've seen Avast and MalWareBytes.org mentioned here. I don't believe Facebook is the vector. My DW had gotten on my laptop and the only web site she'd gone to was DS when the Malware tried to install itself. Anyway, my 2 cents.

Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

For the past two days everytime I log onto DS Malware pops up. It doesn't do it on any other site and I don't have facebook and haven't been on myspace in months. Last time this happened I had to end up getting a new hard drive.

Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

Yup, I got that same thing when I came here yesterday. And I got is a couple months ago, too. Reason why I don't really come here much. I don't see why it's being blamed on every other site. After MANY, MANY complaints of this, I'd kinda start to think there is some reasoning for it all. All these people here aren't just going to scream virus for the heck of it.

That's what I got twice now with the same link. I am not coming here anymore. I don't need this on my new computer. Good bye diaper swapers.

Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

Just had it happen to me!!! UGH! This has happened before, but I have a Mac so it doesn't get past changing screens in firefox. Super irritating though! It only happens on this site for me too.
