Well, whatever you do, don't go to that website! That website listed on the "malware notice" is a reported attack site (according to McAfee). It's obviously a trick!

I am hardly one to direct any one of you to sites of off WI, but please, download this program. It is a legitimate program and will remove the malware. I love it It is free and it highly recommended.

Yep, WI ran a story on the front page about that a few weeks ago, it is completely safe

Default Re: Malware? This is impossible.

It does not matter what browser you use it still on occasion will pop up anyway even if you have a good virus/spyware blocker... sneeky little bugs, but like it has been said thousand of times on tons of threads - don't click on it .

Default Re: Malware? This is impossible.

Hmm,

Send that to a mod or admin. Make sure you include the picture, date, and time you got it. It may also have come to you from another website. Or it could be a glitch.

Default Re: Malware? This is impossible.

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.
