Don't put files on fileden.com

Use mediafire.com

File hosting site.

So just remove any links that any of the members have posted from fileden.com

there are so many file host. and all of them have adds or pop-outs it's just some host/sites are worse then others.. always avoid or do not allow anything with cash links to.. there can be much corrupt sites,add. pop-outs and everthing else. and just for someone out to make a buck on you clicking the link.

so if you are going to allow file host you should settle on popular ones that have been around a long time.. like megaupload, rapidshare,zippyshare there are many.. but one again all of them will have some sort of adds on them.. just the host that been around a long time and are more respected usually do not have anything like malware etc.. but that dose not mean they wont sometimes.. it's just part of the web it's everywhere... lol

Intersting

I googled it because i have never heard of it. not sure if this is what it is.
But do you have html enabled on your forum.. you can start by disabling that and checking any post that may have html codes in it and see if someone has this site or something referring to this site hidden in the code.

For shorts start with the board it may be popping up on.

You will have to explain what it's doing and how it's popping up.
Like whats you computer doing when this thing comes up?

I cant really be sure what it is and how to fix until we understand what it's doing and where.
it might be some sort of ad-ware or something trying to get hits, i am just guessing of course and trying to narrow it down.

Please explain more.. lol scratch

Fileden is one of those file hosts which are sponsored by adult advertisements to make it free, and most likely have a ton of pirated files stored there ( Thumb down ). If one of your members has used this host to upload a file it may cause this warning. The only real way to see if this host was used is to sift through all posts with an image or file either linked or posted. Let your members know of the issue, and to stop using this file host. A good rule of thumb for any hosting is when you go to the main site and you get pop ups are see adult adverts, stay away.
This may take time.

Possibly links from that site are posted in either of the posts in that thread.
Just delete that thread to be safe.
