In progress Malware !!!

First topic message reminder :

Great set up here. It looks like it will work well if it is set up correctly. It also looks like it can be customized. Customizing takes time and I thought I would add to it's customizing little by little over time. A forum that works right now is what I need.

I have a site that is Russian and English language. I thought I would start a forum in both languages. It was in its second day of existence when two big buttons, saying "DOWNLOAD" and "PLAY NOW" appeared on top of the discussion in forum. This was the first forum I created.

http://savingbp.forumotion.com/

I thought the buttons were from forumotion, so I pushed one of them. My McAfee virus protection became active. I got a page warning I was about to enter a suspicious site and two Trojan viruses were immediately cleaned. Somehow, it downloaded what it wanted. It was an Ilivid media software. It looks like it could be a software I might need later on, so although I don't know what it is, I have not removed it. It was asking me forumotion questions, so I assume it is from forumotion.

In the mean time, the two buttons on top of my forum remained. Pushing them gave me the same message from McAfee. I did a virus scan from McAfee and it cleaned 13 additional viruses. How could I subject my readers to this? I abandoned it and created another forum.

http://sbpenglish.forumotion.com/

Now, in one of the pages, I get the same two big buttons. Another page has a button to download something. Another has a game and when you play it, it takes you to a gaming site.

The Russian language forum has no such buttons, but it has not been used other than starting three threads.

This is quite annoying. Is this something I have to live with if I continue to use your forumotion?

Yeah i dont know how Google or others like Google ad-sense conduct their business , I mean you see a lot of these ad's on ad choice and others as well, So as long as these companies are getting paid,Then i guess they dont care what ad's they run.

Other then that i guess it's safe to say the questions have been answered and this thread can be marked, locked and archived.. Smile

Come on, Captain Kirk. Close the thread? We have not heard from the Godfather. The ad is still there. Honestly, I don't believe they are from Google at all. You have not said so. You just said they are from Google and others like it. It is just one ad.

If you say that they are from Google and you report it, then I agree. Close the thread. Google on all their efforts for good content blew it on a potentially harmful ad.
