OT. Beware Virus Warning

Submitted by Blue boy johnson on December 14th, 2011 at 6:59 PM

I just had a Virus blocked on MGO by my $24.00/yr AVG protection. I don't have anythng else open, so I am sure It was here.

EDIT: It happened it the "a few minor recruiting notes" thread. My arrow was scrolling over the You Tube video in the first post when the "threat" was blocked.

Technically META althought hopefully OT for me...

I still am fuzzy on how this pops every now and then. Do people somehow hack into the blog and put viruses there which we can get by visiting?

Thanks for the heads-up. Time to switch from work pc to home mac.

Also - semi-related along the lines of INTERWEBZ - anyone wanting to tell their friends they know how to 'hack the internet' can use this fun website. All you do is choose what you want your hacking to look like and start typing random keys like a madman.

When I bought my first Mac the salesman asked if I wanted to purchase virus protection.  I actually laughed at her.


4 years later, no bugs, no issues at all.  Worth the money.

We will check everything ASAP. If anyone else has an issue please email me with details; right now I just have the one report and can't reproduce it.

Looks like I am the only one who got the warning. What's up with that? I feel like "he hate me".

I had the free stuff and still picked up viruses, here and elsewhere.Since I doled out the 24 bucks, I've had no problems, even during the big melt down a while back.What's 2 loonies a month anyway. That's less than 7 cents a day

I can't help but wonder if it is going to have a spot for keeping track of couches immolated, or "days since the last couch burning?"
