In progress Member of forumotion sent me virus

Post by mcdk on October 17th 2015, 12:37 pm

Hello there ,

I asked from a winner of your mobile contest if it was possible to use his mobile theme.
He said ok , he asked me for my e-mail , he sent me a zip file , with the css code and the bbtheme as he said , I unzipped the file , and there was only one file without any extension bbtheme or css.
Am I right now injected or what?
Please help.

Why do you think that you got a virus?

It sounds like there was an issue with the files being downloaded. Have you contacted the person you asked?

The Member is @Herry Sudrajat , which won in your mobile contest and I asked him politely if it is possible to use his mobile theme.
I wrote him my e-mail and He sent me a zip file , which included a virus.

Hello @mcdk ,

What SLGray was asking was, how do you know there was a virus in it? Did you get a notification from your virus security?

He said to me , that he was going to sent me the .bbtheme and the css code.
I check out in the zipped file and there was none a .bbtheme file extension or .css file extension.
The zipped size was 2mb and after unzipping the programm said it was going to be about 12mb.
And if you think it would be the .bbtheme , it is not.
And I know it , because @Herry Sudrajat told me finally after watching this topic that he sent me the css code(!!!).
And how much size can have a css code my friends?
Which is only text!

Just because the css was not sent correctly, does NOT mean you he sent a virus. There is a big big difference. Just ask him to send you it again, maybe the email provider messed up the file when it was sending it or something.

Also you do not have to unzip a zip file. You just open it and move or copy and paste the files in it.
