Default Fake Virus Threats On WI

When I was trying to post on the DCT today, I got a fake virus threat.
My friend also got one while on WI.

Is this just a coincidence? Or do you think it could be something more?

Because if it is....there's something we need to do.

Thanks Justin, for clearing this up! If this has happened to you, do what Justin says.

IF IT'S A REAL VIRUS: Get your computer checked out IMMEDIATLY. Viruses can seriously screw up your computer, and it can get a hold of personal information like credit card numbers and tax info.

You know, I got the same thing this afternoon, so you are not alone. However, my virus protection was up so I didn't think anything of it. Also, I was forwarded to a couple sites today too without having clicked anything...

Maybe....it depends if people got them recently or before that.

Yes, I know. Lol.

But its probably just a 'hole' in the server or something. Whenever this happens, usually Justin fixes it.
