Hi all,

2 days ago when I was surfing this site, I visited some of the sites on this group. One of them (don't know which one) loaded me up a couple of viruses.

So, be careful. If any sites transfer you somewhere else (click-counters, etc) report them to Christian. He can take further action.

Regards
Frank

Hello Christian,

Sorry, I cannot remember the link, but it was something like "Click on here to download" something. It was a "private" link, not a thunting-link.
I thought it strange, when being re-directed, but did not investigate further.

The virus name is: "Backdoor.Agent!sd5" Angry
The trojan's name is "Trojan.Zlob!sd5"    Angry

I only found it as I did a virus check 2 days later.
I will try to check my "history" but I am using Mozilla, which I think, is a bit harder to investigate.

Vielen Dank, Christian.
Best regards
Frank

 Cool

Christian, neither the backdoor agent or trojan is fairly new, but then they don't have to be to cause trouble.

I am an IT student studying for an IT security career and I frequently go to places on the Internet that one shouldn't go in pursuit of that knowledge, so it didn't surprise me that last August I got infected with something real nasty. That being said, while collecting information on this piece of malware to rid myself of it, I read of one lady who picked it up from a knitting site.

Go figure

Els

People can dop nasty stuff with Trojans. If you ever discover or suspect one is on your PC. Try to stop doing anything involving passwords, bank, money etc

I have not gotten any malware from this site yet and I do a virus check every day or two, I get the occasional bad cooky but, again, not from this site.

Just thought you needed a little reassuring!

Fred and Ethel? very original names GoldDigger!  Grin

I thought I got one, back in June, or so, but it is an inherent problem in the design of my Acer Aspire one, notebook, Whew! that was close!  Shocked

Goldigger, I monitor using Computer Associates and get the odd tracking cookie which it deletes but as you note, not a whisper from here.

My system is SUPPOSED to delete cookies, after the browser session is ended, with the browser being turned off. BUT, it is not perfect and sometimes fails to delete them so I have to do a hand excise job.... this has not been necessary since July.... perhaps one of the browser updates fixed this hole.

On my old win3.1, I just created a folder, for cookies only, deleted most, and there was never any problem over non-acceptance. Now, the process is invisible
