    It is one of the ads that have the problem. Picked it up in the latest Firefox (which is fully locked down - NoScript + AdBlock + AV) and has made the forum unusable. Chrome picked up as well (with AdBlock). Nothing in Safari (iPhone). Uninstalled IE so can't say from that point of view.


    There's a surprise Mike. A combination that is reknowned for not picking these sorts of things up. Both are pretty useless.

    IE is not likely to pick this up as it has many security issues. FF doen't pick it up itself, but uses google diagnostic. Firefox users can prevent this from happening by disabling the 'reporting attacksites' function in the preferences (yes I use a dutch version :) ).

    I'm not worried, these trojans cannot harm me as long as I don't give them rights to execute. For windows users: keep your anti-virus updated and you'll be fine I guess.

    As long as your computers protection systems (anti virus, spam protection, etc) are working you should be fine. It is more of an annoying problem than anything.
