    Hey guys,

    I got a virus on my computer called "antivirus" (spl), and I couldn't figure out where it came from. Today when I logged in on another PC the virus protection picked it up. Tigerfan was the only thing I had opened when the web alert went off.

    Just giving a heads up.

    Look in the Roundtable, it is being discussed under the popup topic. I have been battling this thing for over a week now. My IT guy isolated it and tracked it to this site. Now unfortunately this site is blocked from my work computer.

    I got the tech peeps working on mine now. Nasty little virus. I was trying to get rid of it yesterday and it made a porn ad pop up right when a client walked into my office. Luckily it was a friend of mine.

    It isn't really porn, it is meant to look like it. If you click on anything on the site it brings you to their site to purchase their antivirus ware. A real pita it is.

    As I meantioned in the other thread, it acts like it is a Java update, so if you have them look at your java plugin that is where they will find it.

    Aids is a disease, not a virus.

    Although that is funny, the virus this site is giving off isn't. I had a nice little Java update waiting for me as soon as I opened my browser this morning, again the new antivirus ware took care of it, but to those who may not have antispy or virus ware, you need to get it if you visit here often. If you don't it will get you sooner or later.

    It's even worse on a new LSU site.

    Haven't had any issues from other sites. When I've checked the quarintined items it is always this site as the source.
