More and more complaints from my users. Spyware, mostly. My windows media player was opened by an ad when I went to my board today and corrupted. Others are being having their home pages set to unwanted sites.

Help!

Anne


leeme guess, http://www.blazefind.com/ ?

it's spyware.

install ad-aware or spybot: s & d. you can get ad-aware at http://www.lavasoft.de/ and spybot at http://www.safer-networking.org/ . i personally recommend installing them. my sister had one piece of spyware installed that did this. once it was removed, it never happened again.

Yes, its Spyware! You must get Ad-Aware! Its the best program out there for stopping spyware! Its easy to install and very easy to use!
I've had a big problem with spyware on my comp and my bro, who KNOWS comps, said Ad-aware is the best program to use. Since I've put it in my comp, I regularly do scans and it always finds these darn spyware in my comp! They find MANY ways in all the time! You just scan, then fix. :smile:
You can get the free ad-aware download at cnet.com. Look up ad-aware.

Good luck!
*hugs*

Yes, I run adaware and spybot everyday now and that fixes the problems. I tell my users to do this also, but this is getting out of hand in the last month. I didn't really believe it was coming from our board, but we've never had a complaint about this before and in the last month, I've had a dozen people PM or post about it. I also saw the 'ad-splitting' mentioned in another thread when I was using a dialup connection last week. Instead of 2 pop-ups in 12 hours, each splits into 2 or 3. So the first five minutes at our board is spent combatting all the popup windows. It's actually better at a free board I sometimes frequent-there you just get the bbv2 ad and no 'messiness'.

actually, at a free board, you get other ads also. My paid board never has ads because we are on the variable plan, the fixed plan has popups. If you want to stop the ads, the variable plan works better. Better yet, if this annoys you, try something else.

/me hopes that doesn't get banned

Re: I regularly receive a Trojan Horse virus when I access this site. ( 18:47:43 ThuApr 29 2004 )

I can understand their frustrations and think that was uncalled for.. I have went to the sites they are speaking of and most of them I did get unusual pop-ups... I also visit another board quite often http://frost.bbboy.net/salemhearts and I recieve pop-ups there also.. Not on every page but on most and this add will sometimes freeze up and will not let you close it untill it has generated the other adds..

On my board I do not experience this at all and I have tons more page veiws there with myself doing work on it.. I spend most of my time there and not once has popped up.. So it is happening to different boards..

My point is, they have a right to complain and demand answers. They are paying for service and for you to come along and tell them if it annoys them to go on elsewhere, is just plain rude..

If this thread annoys you why don't you just stay out of it..

Thank you for understanding..

Trojans......... ( 06:14:32 TueMay 4 2004 )

Board Plan: Variable

Every time I go to my board, I pick up a trojan as soon as I get there. In fact, I got 3 of them just a bit ago and they were detected and cleaned. I fear going to my board now. I have spyware and McAfee installed. If this keeps on, I will have to delete my board, which I truly do not want to do. Any ideas?

TIA

Re: Trojans......... ( 06:17:58 TueMay 4 2004 )

In fact, if I decide to delete the board, someone will have to do it for me because of my picking up the trojan every time I go in there. Sorry - don't mean to be a pain, but this has me worried. Is it possible for someone to delete the board other than myself?

Re: Trojans......... ( 10:48:19 MonMay 10 2004 )

Got this complaint today from a user at my board:

Quote:

When I tried to log into the DB this morning, I got a pop up for Ringtone Universe and a security warning about installing software from "Moldconnecta". Careful reading reveals that this is a premium rate dialler and it was very reluctant to take no for an answer. Has anyone else seen this? Could someone take it up with bboy as a matter of urgency please.

I have just read the threads about this so I see lots of other folks are having similar problems and that bboy are not doing much about it. I'm in no doubt that this dialler trojan relates to the bboy popup advertising. I run zone alarm, adaware + norton anti virus and my internet cache was empty when I logged on to the db.
