Servimg.com is a third rate photo hosting website. Pictures often get deleted, or do not load properly or very slow. Yesterday I logged on to Servimg.com and my virus protection (Avast) alerted me that I had run into a virus. I will never use Servimg.com again.

Forumotion should look into using photobucket (or other) for a default photo host.

Hi,

I can deffinatly assure you that Servimig didnt give you a virus. Sometimes virus checkers can think a certain website in this case servimg is dodgy, i would have been when you uploaded your picture that a cookie or tracking cookie (totally harmless) entered your system and your virus checker alerted you.

I hope you understand.

Hello azredliner,

Beno is correct. Also, McAfee SiteAdvisor says Servimg is also a GREEN site. Meaning it is not a threat to your computer. Hope that helps! Razz

I picked up a virus at Servimg.com 60889648

is it real? cause I know people who'd try to destroy my forum, and I didn't register there or do anything, so I suspected a phisher...

Not false positives, over sensitive. If a string which is PART of a virus, it will alert you, and tell you PART, yes, not necasrily it will do anything, but it has part of a virus or we. You can lower the settings in options i believe, but i <3 avast.

I myself use Avast! and Avast has never ever had a problem with Servimg.com
you are most likely picking it up from else where....maybe another site?

your Servimg.com account was created, because you (or a user) has hosted an image.
Servimg.com is ForuMotion's version of PhotoBucket.
it is connected to your forum, VIA ur admin panel Wink

I am frustrated, Darren, and I am bumping to do just that... get some support. I have waited for a couple of days now, watching the thread where I expounded upon the three wiped-out operating systems, and the thread appeared to be completely dead. I wondered if anyone else had started threads with this issue, and indeed they had.

What, then, would you suggest we do? I am open to suggestion.

I understand your frustration
(I am having similar problem's with a friends forum right now)

The only thing that we (users) can do, is keep our antivirus up-to-date & get the best protection possible.

That is all we can do.

I've also got the same problem and others to do with Servimg potentially reusing URLs - I posted a thread a couple of days ago but no answer yet.

Servimg has major glaring faults - I'm going to have to recommend to all my users that they go back to Photobucket until I know for sure what the outcome of this is.

Popups for FoxyBingo, viruses and trackers are UNWELCOME when simply trying to view a photo.

I strongly agree with you Pip - the persistent nuisance pop-ups in servimg are a flippin nuisance!! Even with "pop-up blocker enabled" I still get the ad with url which starts with "optimisedby...."

For info - I wrote more about that in a topic complaining about Servimg issues, which Sanket has kindly now moved to the "Need a Technician" Board, here .....
