    Malware on site

    so i sent an image of my AV blocking something to Cuguy earlier.

    now Chrome is denying me access to the site. just a heads up to the staff.

    The only virus on this forum is that Silver_Knight guy.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Getting it also, though not on any one page so I'm going to assume its in an ad. The filename is not always the same, but its good to know its the site and not my firefox.. still sucks its on my most frequented site though.

    Found it odd below the British Airways ad I see a yellow bar with an "X", and right before I got the pop-up firefox was transferring data from image2.pub-which sadly thats all I remember. If thats the issue, I dont know.

    I got a warning as well. I got a 'Java wants to run on this site' message and reluctantly hit 'run this time' (have been messing with blocking javascript on LA Times through the adblock plugin so wasn't sure if I broke Java on other sites by mistake).

    Right after I hit the 'run this time' I had a notification from Malwarebytes telling me it blocked an attempt. The "Vendor" is listed as 'Rootkit.0Access.EPA' and the file name was 'F9QVCB.exe'.

    I'm having so much trouble removing this malware from my computer it's not funny. I know I should have had my firewall on but I thought all my usual
    Websites were safe.


    Ill be back once it's fixed/I'm confident it won't occur again

    this is why people don't like ads.

    and no official comment in 11 hours? no offense, but come on, if this place can't be run adequately now (navigation/malware etc), what's going to happen when next gen really kicks off?

    Every single time I close out PSU and load it up, I get an AVG pop up saying it blocked some site from accessing my pc. The website it provides is always different.

    You dont have to be sorry as its not your fault that this issue appeared. Its the technical guy who is lazy and never does something and when he does he only adds additional issues. In my opinion he should be fired and a better technician should get employed.

    I just got this today, I came here to report it when I saw this thread.
    I'm using Mozilla and it flagged it as an "Attack Site"... whatever that means.
