Virus

I'm not sure if this goes here or not, but I was on my work computer and I was on here and got a virus when I clicked on a link to etsy. I'm not sure if the virus came from here or etsy, but I just wanted to let you know. Thanks

I will ask the techs have a look. I haven't come across any viruses here though, my firewall hasn't alerted me and I use kaspersky.

Do you remember which link you clicked? Has it only happened once? Can you post a screenshot if you see it again please?

We need a lot more information to track this down. I am looking into this now.

Re: Virus

i've gotten that weird box that pops up and says something along the lines of IF YOU DON'T CLICK OK YOUR COMPUTER WILL DIE and i know if i click "cancel" on it, it'll download a virus. i usually just restart my computer, run ad aware, and call it good. it happened pretty much every other day once i started surfing diaperswappers. then i downloaded the ad blocker for firefox, and haven't had a problem since.
