  • Virus Threat?

    New in the last day or two:

    When I first go to ADKForum front page (Google Chrome, all caches clear), I get a message from Avast that says it has secured a virus threat:

    HTML: RedirDL-inf [Trj]

    with the URL:

    This only appears when first going to the page.

    Interesting. I'm using Chrome and Avast (on a mac) and don't see anything similar.

      Yeah, none for me as well.

      By the way, newbie here as well. Whenever I'm taking a break from this particular interest, I'm usually found at home, treating my Pomeranian to his nylabone and watching TV with my brother. Such a simple, yet, happy life. Cheers, everyone!

        I get it too, now, but only if I hit your link. Not if I just hit

        If you go to virus total and plug in that url, you get one hit, from an engine I've not heard of.

          Can't say I've seen that one either (with the same virus program, Avast).

            Might depend on the anti virus settings, perhaps?

              Maybe. No worries.

              I was traveling at the time - this was on a relative's PC with Windows 7, Chrome and Avast. I don't know what the various settings were.

              There is definitely something floating around out there connected to ADKForum. The other thing that happens sometimes when traveling, using a "foreign" PC, is that instead of opening ADKForum, a "File Store" site will open. I don't know what that is, but I always close it and try again to actually get to our site here...

                Hmm, sounds like some sort of glitch to me.
