    Default locatorjobs.com infection message

    the sister site locator jobs.com sparked a blocking of the site upon signin.

    The message was;

    URL: stayfriends-de.sfr.fr.uol-com-br.mydirectoutlet.ru:8080/met-art.com/met-art.com/guardian.co.uk/abcnews.go.com/google.com.php
    Name: Link to known exploit site (type 750)

    Try refreshing and see if it happens. I got a virus on that site the same time this one developed one. I went in and cleared it out. I no longer get that message. You might be pulling up an old page from your cache and that is probably why it is giving you an alert.

    Just guessing on this one. Let me know what happens.

    Okay, but I do not get it browsing the site. I only get it if I try logging in.
    I will try again

    That helps. It may be that I missed one.

    Looks like it is back.
    The warning message reads:
    Link to known exploit site.

    I just fixed it AGAIN. I'm in the process of getting rid of my current virus protection (Norton) and going to AVG. I'm none too happy.

    Apparently this virus called a Gumblar looks for passwords to websites on your computer and then logs onto the website and uploads itself to the site. Freakin nuts if you ask me. I think people who create these things should be drawn and quartered in a public square.

    If anybody knows of a good antivirus, spyware, malware program, please let me know.


    Thanks

    I think your idea of drawing and quartering is sufficient.

    I just use Microsoft's Security. I recently got one of those Trojan bugs and they caught it and deleted it for me. Of course, I always thought Trojans prevented infections!

    Also, I think they ought to treat the creators of these bugs like Dan treated the Squatters in Lonesome Dove: He shot , hung 'em and then burned 'em because "he hated their guts and livers"

    This site and locatorjobs got infected again last night. Luckily I was on at the time and took care of it. I found out that all you need to do is change the passwords for FTP to the web server and that will take care of the problem. These viruses are bad.

    If anyone has any problems at all, please let me know ASAP.

    Thanks
