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

Twice when I logged on today I had this http://pcantimalwaresolution.com take over my computer.... it froze for 15 minutes... I couldn't force close or anything. I finally shut down my computer and got firefox to restart. This happened two days ago as well as soon as I typed in www.diaperswappers.com

ETA: I too have a Mac

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

I just got that same thing earlier today, 'antivirus' tried to load itself.
DH is an IT specialist. He works in security. He runs servers for a major university. This is is job.

According to him, us average folks, who clearly cannot run our own computers (sarcasm), can simply google the national vulnerability database and do a search query for 'vbulletin', the powerhouse behind this site. There are several vulnerabilities associated with the current version of vbulletin.

Please, Diaperswappers, fix your problem. Please do not blame it on users.

Last time I got a virus was 8 years ago from doing irresponsible surfing. I now only visit sites I know, my emails and another forum I have been on for about a year. I was recommended over here and within a DAY of being on this forum a virus attemped to install itself on this computer.

Ladies (and gentlemen)...
BE CAREFUL what you click on.
After some research, DS and I have found several bloggers posting links that say 'diaperswappers' in the text but direct you to the Malware.
Naughty people do this to get google to direct you to the malware site when you search for the actual site.

DS... please do some research and make it safe for us to continue to use your site.

I'm having the problem, too. Is it true that nothing's being done to fix it?! What can we do?!?
