Topic: A JL Favor
Posted: Today at 11:55amCould one of you address an O&E post to the Admins that I just had the following pop up while on JL? I figure they should know that it's not just Dan. Thanks. I can't afford to pop over there at work now. It was scary - my whole screen turned red!

Ok, I'm not that computer savy, but could his work put something like that in their firewall???
It's not the destination, it's the journey!
I received notification from Mcafee last night that it had found and destroyed a trojan. The only site I had been on at the time is JL. hmmm wonder whats going on.
There has to be a code in the board script somewhere. It can be difficult to find and sometimes you have to go line by line in the script to find it. I had it happen on one of my own forums and I couldn't find it for the life of me. Called in the IT guy and he found it almost immediately. It took a bit of work to get it out of there, but he was finally able to. I picked up a trojan last week from being on here despite my firewall, using firefox and my virus protection.

It's called "scareware".
I just had Trojan:Win32/FakeSpypro removed from my computer shortly after posting this thread.
It's okay, I survived and lived to tell about it!!
I go this message from McAfee last night while on JL:
Has been detected and removed.
“If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”
