I dont think I've gotten a virus lately.... but I had a computer once that got really messed up whenever I went on WI. It crashed eventually, and we had to do a lot of repairing. Now its ok, but it took FOREVER to fix.

I'm sorry to hear that. I too got a virus from an add I believe. Mywebsearch [if you got it from an add] is also a virus.

I also have received virus warnings from my antivirus software about trojan downloaders while being on WI. I don't think it's necessarily Webkinz Insider, but rather the advertisements that are the problem.

I guess the challenge is trying to figure out exactly which advertisement is running when I'm getting the virus warnings.

Maybe others can discuss if they've noticed any patterns with this?

Unfortunately, the software we use for the front page was deemed "End of Life" some months ago and the company producing the software is no longer updating the code with security updates. As such, some malicious person is using a security hole in the front page software to insert code into some of the articles.

I have identified the security hole and patched it. Although it has been fixed, it highlights an important issue that needs to be addressed. As a long term solution, we will be converting to a different CMS that is still in development and will continue to provide security fixes. Unfortunately, this is a difficult transition and may take a few weeks to complete.

We'd like to stress that what is happening is in no way affiliated with WI, or any of its advertisers, and if we can identify the culprit, there will be legal consequences.
