    Virus on here?

    Post  RichB on Fri Apr 25, 2014 8:38 am

    Has anyone else noticed that there is a virus on this web site that tries to load the srv123.com adware virus by pretending that there is a Java update available? I don’t know how you eradicate it from the web site but I’ve just spent an hour running Malware Bytes to get it out of my system after I stupidly got tricked by it.

    I tend to browse the site on my iPad, and haven't had that message yet. The adverts are unnervingly linked to my web browsing though

    So it is a scam - thought it might be so I've been ignoring it, but it keeps on popping up. Anyone know how to torpedo the wretched thing for good?

    Bit like the Flu, but harder to get rid of. A strong course of antibiotics should help. Wink
