Default Re: i've been hit:(

There was another thread about possible virus. Justin says everything is okay on WI. I reported getting pop-ups. I didn't recieve any today. It does seem strange that more and more people the last view days are reporting issues and the 1st place they visited was WI. I have anti-Spy and Norton, (so if and thats a big if) something is on WI I believe my software catches it. Again I don't think I have a virus, but something is going on. Hope Justin can figure it out soon. Please don't bash me, I felt bashed the other day. I love WI and feel privledged to be a member of such a site, but feel it's important to post any issues that may come up. Best Wishes

Virus Information

Attention Everyone who reads this. Just a little warning as I have experienced this myself on my daughter's Laptop. Beware of popups that say scan your computer or download files to check for viruses. Two days ago, my daughter's laptop received one (her antivirus software had expired and she didn't tell me) and she did the scan and downloaded the program (IT WAS A VIRUS) this supposed antivirus software/program was the actual virus. The name of this supposed antivirus program/software is ANTIVIRUS 2009 do not download.

Beware of popups and downloading files and always make sure you have a real antivirus program/software such as Norton Antivirus or McAffee

Do you get pop-ups? Thats what I was getting upon entering 1st thing in morning, then rest of day I wouldn't see any. My Norton and Anti-Spy has never popped up saying I had a virus. I'm just bringing the pop-ups to attention. I had posted screen shots the other day.

That's really weird. I think they might be related actually. Just stay clear of the houses, I know I will.

My laptop was completely wiped out a while ago, my sister said it happened when she was on, but I think it might have been from wi. I recently went around and posted in every forum so... not sure.

Hm, it might not be from WI, though. It could be from any site you visited, but, you never know. Just be sure you have an anti-virus software.
