Forums - Website Topics - Site riddled with Viruses...AGAIN?

Every time I visit here I now get multiple warnings about viruses and trojans and at one point a program began to install itself!

Anyone else with these problems or just me?

 



Around the Network

I'm not aware of anything



The only problem I had was that I get directed to PC Life or something for 3 times or so. No virus or trojan for me though, so probably just you? All my problem seem to have been pressure on my laptop (the touchpad is a wii bit sensitive), you probably caught something.



I am a PC gamer, and also have a NDS now, but without access to a Nintendo Wii until End of 2007.

Currently playing: Super Smash Brothers Brawl(Wii), Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer(DS), Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime (DS), WiiFit(Wii)

Games Recently Beaten: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King (Normal; Very Hard after the next DLCs become available)

1 word: RTFA

Nope, I've gotten a few of the same message. I bet it's neogaf members or something.



You can find me on facebook as Markus Van Rijn, if you friend me just mention you're from VGchartz and who you are here.

It's not every time but it is when I visit this site only.

seeing as how it doesn't seem widespread I will elaborate a bit more. I'll get a popup message (I use firefox with adblocker) that says there may be viruses and that I should update my system (recomended) but it's worded very poorly and clearly not from microsoft or my virus protection sofware. If I X out of it (I don't click any of the options "update now" or "update later") and it closes my browser and a few more messages pop up insisting that I update now because I don't know what might be on my computer (again, not professionally worded at all), and each one I X out of brings up another one (different message, same general idea), and does it several times before it goes away.

I hope not, I just started again to visit this site from work.

Oh well, I'm sure I'll get a phone call from IT if true.

Just sounds like an annoying ad rather than a serious virus problem. Having said that, I talk to our ad network and try to get rid of some of the ads (people seem to be complaining about the ipod one as well)...



I have my browser set up so that I don't get the pop-ups and redirects anymore. However, last night it was taking about 4-5 minutes for pages to load. That only lasted for about 30 minutes total though.
