That's the exact same one I got last month! I might be switching over to the other big cloth diaper board....I can't keep risking my computer.

Ladies, we do not allow competing boards to be discussed.

Pickychicmom, you are the only one reporting this "virus" at this point. I have notified my chief technician and he is keeping an eye on this thread and the site security. I do not believe your virus came through this site and your screenshots seem to support this.

To all members: this seems to be an instance of a user getting some malware that did NOT come from this site.

No, it isn't (I repeat is NOT) the IP address of DiaperSwappers. I just want to be clear. Though we had had a history of malware issues on DS coming through ads for the most part, we have also been blamed for things that have nothing to with the site at all.

I have searched and come up with nothing. It also doesn't belong to an ad network either.

From the techs: "pretty sure it's coming from an infected Windows machine somewhere"

I traded with a momma, and she said she also had a virus I'm very active on the boards, and visit almost all the threads. I've never had a problem with anything and we don't have a anti-virus system.

Also, how are you taking screen shot, saving them, and them being able to post them on here is your virus is so bad, and you need to have it fixed? I'm not trying to start anything, I'm just really confused about this whole virus thing. And have heard rumors. But I haven't had any problems, and I just recently became a WHAM, and visit the WHAM threads multiple times a day.
