Default Unanswered: Webkinzinsider and Malware?

I was trying to get on WI from my google chrome browser and it said that webkinzinsider was hosting adds that were not appropriate and contained malware. This shocked me because I never saw that warning before! Right now I switched browsers and am running a spyware/malware/virus check.

Maybe Justin should look in this????

I think it's a glitch. On the front page a while ago, Google was saying every website had malware/spyware/viruses. WI is completely safe If you still don't feel comfortable using WI, you can PM a mod/admin to make sure

Yeah, I remember seeing something like that on the front page, and I never had a problem with WI before, but it said there was an ad from a site that hosted malware, and lets just say the site was not fit for kids!

I trust that WI is safe but maybe that ad was one from the google ads that are on the bottom of the page that randomly regenerate when you type something related to them.

Hopefully it IS just a glitch and gets sorted out soon!

If it IS an ad, I would use the pop-up blocker. I think that Justin is aware of the ads and is trying to fix them

The ad that was up on the top of my screen when it happened was for the online game crossfire.

A lot of members saw that ad earlier this week. I know the Admins have been notified of these ads that randomly show up.
I had it happen to me this week clicking on a thread. I thought I had misclicked an ad by accident, but I heard from a lot of people that they had it happen to them also.

I had a problem that has bugged me for a week....

Win32.Zafi.B

This was a advertising virus that would just keep popping up even though my pop up blocker was on and norton was on.

The only 2 websites that I have been visiting is WI and WW.

It took me forever to figure out how to get rid of it, but Windows Defender did the trick for me!

I am not saying that WI is not safe, I am saying there might be a problem with some of the ads.

Default Re: Webkinzinsider and Malware?

Almost everytime I log on to WI it says Malware was found... it does not give my computer a virus though. I think it is just giving me a sign that there is malware somewhere... but not on WI, I am sure of it!

Kaspersky slapped down something yesterday when I tried to pop in here -- slapped up a warning about malware/adware (can'temember) and wouldn't load WI.

Somthing is going on.
