    [SOLVED] Malware Warnings


    You're probably already aware of this, but I'm getting malware warnings all over the place on linuxforums.

    It looks like a xss exploit of some sort, the malware warning is coming from medicinebuyviagra.com

    I just registered to post this, the activation link to /forum/regsiter.php popped a malware warning, and the original article I was trying to read was /forum/ubuntu-linux/139915-solved-xserver-wont-load-ubuntu-8-10-a.html, which also popped the warning.

    Good luck, I just had to fix something similar across a number of clients, it took days to clean. MF'n hackers and spammers. There's a special level of hell waiting for them.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Do you happen to have any specific Ad-Blockers or AV software?

    Just wondering...


    *EDIT*

    I just ran though my Ad-Block lists...
    I saw nothing about a "medicinebuyviagra.com" or any such.

    medicinebuyviagra.com isn't listed in Adblock list of my boxes too.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
