    newengland1 dot com VIRUS ISSUES?

    Hello board, I just clicked on newengland1.com and fortunately blocked a trojan virus that was trying to be downloaded onto my computer from this site.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue when attempting to view newengland1.com?

    No, I have definitely never had or heard of that issue when visiting the site. The CP member who owns that site is a regular here as well and I'm sure can verify that for you.

    His username is rtibbs

    Please send him a pm, I'm sure he would like to be made aware of the situation as he is very active with his site.

    Yes, we do have a virus. It seems that Kasperskey Virus software used by tbase is the only one picking it up which tells you something about the others. The site is currently in maintenance mode while we try to find a solution and figure out how it got there in the first place.

    I wish 3.0 was nearer to completion because I would trash the whole site and reload new. I have all my ad data backed up.

    I use McAfee at the moment.

    Quick question - is the virus server side, embedded in an a link or something else?

    Hi Sarge,

    My guess is I got the virus on my computer which then uploaded itself through my ftp account (thanks Norton antivirus).

    I don't know why Kasperskey anti virus seems to be the only one who is blocking it. It was obviously there when I started to look through the files. It shows as a long line of garbage %123bc%&nhr&% etc etc..
    I have removed it from all the files in the dashboard but I haven't even begun to look into the other files. If all the files are corrupted I may just trash the site. I haven't been able to find a software that can remove it and to pay someone would be costly. If that is the case then I will really be chomping at the bit for the release of 3.0.
