Default Re: I keep getting hacked while on here

I have had the same thing happen three times today.

I have used my malware to check and no viruses. I think it is through Firefox.

I looked it up and Firefox has had trouble with "suspected" sites before.

Is everyone with problems using Firefox?

It is defiantly NOT WI. It is your server.

I use Firefox but have had no problems (so far). Don't know if this helps though! Good luck!

This happened to me last week. I had 20 pop-ups attack me and in one case, I mishandled something and spyware got on my computer. Being a WI member didn't help because it happened while the WI homepage was loading, so I had no chance to sign in to get the ads off. Computer was down for a couple of days and I avoided this site for days until I had the nerve to come back. It IS the ads, not the site, I might add. If it does happen to you and you get a red circle with a white x on your toolbar, do not click on anything that tries to load anti-virus software on your computer. It is a fake message and will only make things worse. Instead, do a search in Google for smss32.exe and you will find solutions to how to get it off.

I'm glad you posted this thread. We can help each other!

Hi Coonycoon! This is exactly what brought me to a crashing halt last week. It's not a Firefox-specific problem. You're good.

It just happened to me as well, minutes ago. It's happened before too. I just click my internet back button and it takes me right back to WI. No big deal. I have Norton Antivirus so I'm protected anyway.

Default Re: I keep getting hacked while on here

I had the "sweet lemon grass" page come up too. If it is actually malware or a virus, it should not be allowed. It didn't do anything to me computer because I didn't click on the page (I have MacAfee)

Default Re: I keep getting hacked while on here

Problem is our IE has not been working right due to everytime opening it up it tries taking us to different sites automatically and wont let us go anywhere. So, the repairmen put Mozilla on and said not to use IE anymore.
We also have AVG, and we have so many different spyware protection programs too.

Also, does the Insider subscription thing, do we have to have paypal to do it?
Thanks,
Amy

Default Re: I keep getting hacked while on here

I just got hacked... And I know for a fact that my virus software is up to date. I have never had any problems like this.

P.S. I use Google Chrome. This doesn't seem to be a one-browser thing.

Of course it happens after editing something and not having saved it yet....
