Was just viewing the comments on the mouton article and the page went to a "virus doctor" that was trying to install malware.
Anyone else get this also?
I got a popup yesterday.
hijacked here w/ firefox. damn hijackers. Tressel!
Firefox hijacks me occassionally and closes me out of all open browsers! Son of a bitch. I thought computers were supposed to make life easier to enjoy MgoBlog?
a minute ago.
Every time I think about turning it off one of these threads pops up again.
It just did it to me so I added that, so much nicer.
And whoever keeps negging everyone in this thread who said it happened to them is a douchenozzle.
I got it twice. did a system restore to two days ago, but then got it again when I came back here. Running spybot S&D now, found about half a dozen things which may or may not have been from here.
I thought the computer was going into meltdown status.
just happened. running firefox. yikes.
Just happened to me. I was stupid enough to fall for that gag a couple of years ago and it took me forever to get that virus doctor crap off my computer. This time I just did a quick re-boot and it clears all the things its trying to download.
Ctrl + Atl + Del, and "end task" under the application tab....do not click anything else on the screen.
Just got it when opening a link to a board post from mgoblog home page. Brian, HELP! What is going on? Using Windows Explorer.
It's embedded into one of the ads. It's being worked on again. Status update to come.
Just got it as well.
Using safari on my iPhone and I get that crap too. Annoying.
just happened to me trying to respond to the Boise game open thread.
And I thought it was from all the free porn I stream. Go figure...
if it didn't give you spyware.
I just got it too.
If you get it use malwarebytes. Just run it and come back 15 minutes later and its gone.
I'm running NoScript and AdBlockPlus, and twice today the site wouldn't load anything at all on JUST this site until I closed and restarted Firefox. Related? Probably.
He's sent complaints to yardbarker. Not sure what can be done about it though. This yardbarker contract can't end soon enough.
for recission of the contract. I mean come on, their product is breaking people's computers.
This happened to me today on my work computer (can't install AdBlockPlus) and a family member's computer. Not good. Not good at all.
I just got it now too, and I'm getting pop-ups all of the sudden, and I never get popups. Also, I seem to be signed in all the time.
Edit: mine could be unrelated (this is my backup pc), but I don't know, it's worrying because for some reason my AV software won't finish a scan.
Also just had it happen a few min ago
Happened to me as well....9/20/09 @ 4:20pm
This happened to me too today. I read the board alot, but usually don't post.
