I see that AdBrite is back again. My virus program picked up a malicious trojan again.

I just checked and Trojan.ByteVerifier was detected today.

Wow I can't believe it's still there. My other forum uses adbrite too but has no virus problems from it. Very odd. I removed it here again.

Thank you. Whatever it is, it seems to latch on to each member and create a 'guest' member. I was begining to wonder if those without the 'guest' following them around had Macs.

Hi all,
Lloyd Pye told me that when he tried to access my site, his avast software reported a trojan horse. I don't see how that can be though, since google ads do not usually have viruses in them.

Has anyone else had any virus warnings when coming to this site?

Yes, I sent you an email because I couldn't access the site for the last two days. This particular virus (trojan) is rampant and much harder to get rid of that the ones in the past. All I had to do was enter the site and WHAMMO!

There was a virus hijack on the Godaddy server that caused many sites to be infected, including this one, but it's been fixed now. See the announcement here:

I'm running Panda free antivirus, and had no issues with this site.
