    Malwarebyte's full version states it has blocked a potential threat each time I open MTBR. I just purchased the full version yesterday. It has stated this since then.

    Malware

    As noted above I got it once--but I'm using Google Chrome as my browser--mainly to minimize my internet exposure to problems. Or so I thought?

    How is Google Chrome compared to Mozilla Firefox in management of RAM? Is it sloppy and as big a suck?

    I can't give you numbers....but loading times are noticeably less in chrome vs. firefox from my experience when I try to open 5 sites at once in the morning in tab view.

    Just got the message too.

    I have Google chrome and very happy with it. Much faster than fox or IE in my opinion and haven't had any problems with it yet.

    Mac is not immune to message

    I AM using a Mac and I got the malware message too. But I think it does have something to do with the ads. I had just looked at BikesDirect and right after that when I clicked on the AZ forum, I got the malware warning.

    No problems, I just recently put norton on my computer.

    There is a trojan going around that uses java/acrobat updates to get into your computer. This has been especially nasty at work and it's happening every day there when we turn on the computers. The computers are in "deep freeze" at night so every day it's like they've never learned anything from the day before. Anyway, my computer has been hit by it as well, but it's been blocked each time. It's always a good idea to know what's in your registry and pop in once and a while to the "run" files to see what's in there.

    Same with me. Mine seems worse in that I cannot open up any programs or files without it saying that my computer is at risk and do I want to buy new antivirus software??

    Yep, that's what I'm talking about. Your computer is "visiting" websites without your knowledge to download "update" files, someone has hacked into this feature. Go to your website history and you'll probably see some wierd websites that you don't remember visiting.

    Don't click these websites:

    Which is pretty ignorant. The more macs out there, the more incentive to design viruses/trojan horses/worms, etc.

    I got WindowsSecurity Soft malware on my home pc with Norton (did absolutely nothing), Windows firewall, defender all on. I was going to blame it on kids playing games on free web sites full of ads, but now I think it came from MTBR.

    Turn off PC, boot in safe mode, run msconfig, on "start up" tab, uncheck anything with "tssd.exe" with unknown publisher so it doesn't load, disabled the proxi to get to internet, downloaded malwarebits. Ran it, found a bunch of threats.

    But who knwos what's been infected, so I restored the system file to last weeks, downloaded all updates from Norton and Microsoft. Turned on everything, and decided not to come to MTBR from my home pc for a while! Grrrr.

    I got that Monday. Malwarebytes running in safe mode will clean it out. Even the free version. Malwarebytes has saved me a few times so I thanked them and paid for the full version after Monday.

    I'm a mental midget when it comes to computers ... that all went right over my head.

    My PC has a network connectivity issue I can not solve. I was thinking about taking it to Data Doctors as recommended by a friend - are they good or a rip off ?

    Any advice on good repair shops in town?

    Yeah that AV Suite is showing up everywhere and Malwarebytes seems to be the only thing that removes it. My Norton finds the Trojan and Quarentines it but it does not remove it. I wasn't sure if it was from hitting this site but this is the site I was browsing to when it popped up.

    are any of you guys that are getting there messages also using ABP in FireFox?
    I'm using it and haven't got any notifications - it's probably in the ads or the adserver.

    hmmm, I wonder if it has anything to with the error messages in the e-mail notifications too - a hacked adserver might make sense.
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    I use ABP with firefox and haven't gotten any alerts. I have Avira and Malwarebytes and neither have detected anything.

    Good mix of defense. I have been seeing a lot more spyware/virus activity at my repair shop this week. Use FireFox with Ad Block Plus will help. Also, use either free Avast or Avira for your Anti-virus. All the other main stream AV packages (Norton,McCrappy,PC-Chillin....) are crap and a waste of $$ in my opinion. Remember in life there is not any protection that is 100% The most important defense is being aware.

    There is no virus. I just checked out 9 different pages and found nothing. I work for a hosting company and we look for these things. Your virus scanners will flag ads sometimes on website due to Iframe tags and flag them as a Trojan-Clicker.HTML.IFrame.g. I will keep looking but i wouldn't worry. Google searches websites on a short time frame since its a big website. If google finds anything harmful it flags it and blacklists it.

    Are you saying the folks above who were redirected to pr0n are lying? Or are you saying a sampling of 9 pages is sufficient to conclude that none of the ad servers have gone rogue?

    I can say for sure there is a virus somewhere on here, my work computer was infected, I could not go on the internet, it would block it every time, and come up with the buy our spy ware now, and kept doing a fake safety scan of my computer, I couldn't even open up our UPS that is also internet based, so we couldn't ship that day, very embarrassing.

    I spent the last 3 hours last night searching all over the place, every place someone said they were at. 3 different browsers and using 2 different scanners and such, checking source code.
    I am not saying people are wrong, I am saying that I could not find ANYTHING wrong with this site. No Javascript or Iframe Injections

    A lot of times you get a problem with the ADs.. since there are ALOT of them on this site. Some ads will trigger other things on your computer.. But I have looked for viruses and found none.

    Same here, go all over the web using both IE or Fire fox. The only place Malwarebyte's pops up telling me they have blocked a threat is MTBR. AZ forum is not the only MTBR forum that has posted an issue on this. I got hit with the same issue dirtrider6 mentioned Monday at the office. Luckily for me no one was there and I got it cleaned out. I will not open MTBR at the office until my home system quits popping up these threats. Little surprised no response yet from admin or a moderator that I've seen! Would be nice to have an official response since multiple people seem to be seeing something.

    Edit as soon as I posted this Malwarebyte's responded with.

    Blocked access to a potentially malicious website 95.143.193.245.

    Regardless of how or why the virus/malware/spyware got on your computer, it needs to be properly removed. You can try using www.malwarebytes.org free version to get it off. Most of the more advanced fake AV infections will not let the removal application run. I would also scan with Spy-Bot Search and Destroy and your AV if/after you get the main infection under control. If that does not get it completely off you will need professional help. Another option is to back up and reload Windows and all your apps. PM me if you need more help. I get these off my clients machines every day with out reloading.

    i reformatted my laptop last weekend and on my first visit to mtbr (prior to installing adblock on chrome) i got the warning from avast - it was from one of the ads. i killed the connection to the threat, installed adblock and everything has been fine since. no warnings of threats and nothing infected on any of the 7 machines on my network.

    is everyone who's getting the warnings using an ad blocker?

    If you get the lovely "Microsoft AntiVirus 2009 / 2010".. Download combofix from combofix.org and it fixes anything and removes the really hard stuff.. saves you from having to send your pc out

    Who is the MTBR.com technical support? They should be investigating this issue to resolve it. Google is reporting that MTBR.com has been infected by the site.

    They are probably out riding their bike.

    The work computer here did get hit when I visited mtbr this morning. My AV/inernet protection at home blocks it well, but this computer got infected and Mcafee deleated the infection.

    I love Chrome, Firefox has always crashed or had weird bugs on me.

    If you have virus issues I would highly suggest running www.combofix.org or Norton 360 with the 60 day trial even is great. I use them at my shop

    maybe this will help the site troubleshoot?

    edit: posted details that were probably a threat from a different site, so erased it

    I found a history section on Norton and pulled up this when some ads to the right side of the page started loading:

    actor: C:\windows.explorer.exe
    action: send terminate message to window
    reaction: unauthorized access blocked

    I had not logged on to any other websites during that session earlier today. Again, this may be useless info, but I'm just reporting what I'm seeing. Since I'm new to personally-installed antivirus software (not the corporate ones at work), it all seems important.

    You can run ad block plug in on both browsers.

    Combofix works well as removal tool. I find that most the time it takes several tools to completely remove the infection/s once they get in. At 80.00 per year for a Norton license I will stick with Avast or Avira. They do not use as many running processes and provide the same protection.

    To stay safe run a AV program (preferably a free one mentioned for home use) and use Crome or FF with ABP.

    Edit as soon as I posted this Malwarebyte's responded with.

    Blocked access to a potentially malicious website 95.143.193.245.
    The only place Malware software pops up telling me they have blocked a threat is when I try to go to the classified section but I am not having any issue with the AZ forum.

    Got it a few times at work, which was embarrassing. But never at home with my Mac. Techs at work say it's likely the pop-up ads.

    I've read several threads about the mtbr problem here and on bikeforums.net but haven't had a single warning. PC/Firefox/ABP/F-Secure fwiw. I almost feel left out.

    I just got the message when I logged into the AZ forum. I've been having lot's of virus problems lately, it's really getting aggravating. I'm using IE, maybe I should start using Firefox instead. It's been a constant battle lately to keep viruses off my computer, why all of a sudden I'm being attacked, is a mystery. I found 6 or 7 severe viruses on my last virus scan, and it's a ***** trying to get rid of them. I've had thoughts of unplugging my computer and giving up on the internet. I got the "buy our anti-virus program" message" too, and can't figure out how to delete it yet.

    I use firefox, so it doesn't make a difference. Get a good total security system (anti-virus and anti-malware) like Eset and Kaspersky. I have used ESET for about 3 years and have had zero infections.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll see if I can find another virus program to use. Got the message again after I put in my password to get into the forum, a few minutes ago. Probably got another virus on my computer somehow.
