Don't be too sure. I have really tough blocking software and I got it. It took me days of work to feel I had finally rid my system of it. I have not seen it for a few days (it keeps popping up) but I did one more thing and added a different ad and spyware removing software just in case and went to every site that had a different Av software and when I could ran their free scan. The spyware software turned up some files and a program nothing else had found before. I almost think it is this spyware that leads to the repeating occurences of seeing this stuff reappear. I was stunned that I would pick up something like this on WI. I am very careful to never click on ads and banners and to not go to any site directly from emails in order to avoid infection, plus having all the software installed and still....


As Justin is working to correct this issue, I think a general announcement should have been and still should be made to alert all users. I think of th kids who are here.
I am affended to see these sites but wonder how many children have been exposed.

I agree, a announcement should have been made.
I never said Justin wasnt working hard to fix it and i understand. It must be really hard one to rid of.

But an announcement would be useful.

This really needs fixing, even if it means taking the site down for a few days.

This site is like, infectedinsider.com. But I still love it. Anyway, about 4 times a week a download pops up wanting me to download and save some file. I never do, for fear that it will give me a trogan or something. One time, my computer was acting up really bad. So I did a scan and I had...lets see.

36 spywear
18 worms
3 trogan horses
6 viruses

and a lot of other stuff. Just be careful here.

I've never been redirected from this site before, except for the occasional accidental click on an ad, which I always close before it finishes loading. This should really be fixed. Instead of updating the forums anymore (which was very appreciated, don't take me the wrong way) maybe Justin and the Administrators could work on this.

***ATTENTION EVERYONE***

Every time you log in, DO NOT use the front page until we are sure Justin has fixed the problem. Go straight to www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/ and then log in. I do not get these nasty ads because I have always gone straight to the forum. Any news will be posted in the WI News and Announcements section. I hope you all will take my advice until this is fixed.

I know that this is the top priority for admin and others to fix and they are working very tireless to do so. (Thank you!) it is unfortunate that such a site to discuss something as innocent as webkinz has been targeted, but that is life. . Hopefully things will get straightened out real soon. The change in the front page is to prevent this (hopefully!!) from happening again in the future.

For the time being, if you do get "infected" or redirected please try to make note of what Ads were on the front page and let an admin know, it has got to be a team effort for the time being to get rid of these things! Imtara55 also makes a great suggestion, you could use the webkinzinsider.com/forum link & just read the announcements there.

I have never received a virus from WI personally, so I can not tell you if some of yours is coming from that or not.

Yes, I had this happen to me also. A nasty pop up happened and I couldn't believe it. My computer has been acting funny and I did a virus scan and found a few bugs, but nothing seriously bad yet. I just did a re-install on my computer in Dec. and wiped everything out and started clean again...so I know there was nothing on my computer prior to this...But if this keeps up, I may have to do another re-install, which we all know takes hours.

I reallly hope it gets fixed.
