    Just got a Virus from MTBR

    probably an add. I dont know which. Thankfully I was able to quash it before it took hold (I think).

    Anyone else?

    Which add is it?

    Clean browsing guaranteed. No goofy, intrusive ads, no poorly crafted sidebars. Just the discussions.
    I’m too paranoid to do any websurfing on a PC. I only use my Macs running Firefox + AdblockPlus + FacebookBlocker since I am too kooked out to trust an OS with built-in backdoors.

    Oh, I should add that I worked for a PC company for just short of 8 years, so my paranoia and general lack of trust in BallmerOS™ is not just Mac bigotry.

    Yup, that fake scanning thing today, something about file something that wanted approval twice last week. Approval denied. All okay so far...using McAfee, add blocker and such.

    I'll chime in here too. My Norton Security has been blocking redirects from MTBR for the last week or two. Nothing has gotten thru, but it seems to happen every day now and only on MTBR. And I think it is mobilewinner.com too. Webmaster take note... something is lurking in one of your ads.

    Norton antivirus has been blocking virus attacks from Mtbr for the past couple weeks. It closes windows then norton pop up window shows attack blocked.

    Our IT folks are looking in to it.

    So this is on desktops and mobile devices while browsing these mtbr forums?

    Just minutes ago another attack blocked. Here is a screen shot of norton blocking it, if it helps.

    Same here. By second or third tab, my Dual Core PC is frozen.
    It's not slow, it's doing more MTB time.

    Well, I feel better. Misery loves company. Any idea how to fix it? I tried disabling Flash, which has helped on my Firefox machine, but it didn't help at all.
