Viruses in servimg.com?? Empty Viruses in servimg.com??

Post by ClaraZ25 on July 22nd 2009, 2:17 am

I had a member of my forum ask me about a virus that she believes she got after using servimg. I realize that some work was done to this site a while back to get rid of viruses. I am just wondering if some of them have returned. She said she believes it was this site because her firewall gave her a warning when she went to servimg.com. I was wondering what I should tell her.

Hello,

Servimg.com does not have any virus' in/on it - I garentee it or I wouldn't be here Wink

Get her to do a full virus scan, and preferably go and download avast as it's the best freebie out there.

yes i agree with Darren. it's just some adware tracking cookies etc.. on the page trying to get in. if it came up on her computer warning her then all she has to do is deny it and move to the vault or what ever she is using tells her.

And yes for virus protection avast is great. i have been using it for like 6 months now and rarely get anything come through. i think i will upgrade as well to the premium version.

I use AVG Antivirus. It's not free, but I believe it's better than Avast in terms of range, and you can override it if it's being stupid (which, in my experience, it never is).

Sometimes programs such as Norton say there's problems when there's not, especially with programs ("Trojan Horse" is mistaken for something else, etc).

Personally, from years of experience; AVG just sucks - Period.
Avast offers a larger variety of tools, and flexibility, however your protection is your choice.

Just whatever you do get rid of Nortan (and Symantic the same company makes it) as soon as possible; Nortan (and symantic) both purposely create false purposely - Their when the is no actual virus, and it display a virus notice - In most cases their blank false posatives (from a friends' experience), however it has been cought out that Nortan (and Symantic) that sometimes these false positives are real hard core virus' that AVG doesn't acknowledge ( Yes, it's been tested and proven )

It is your call, im just presenting you some cases, I am not going to go into detail, as you have said you prefer AVG Paid

I can assure you, that there is no virus in the Servimg.com website or database, otherwise honestly; you wouldn't be HERE, some of the images here are hosted on Servimg I believe Wink


EDIT:
Note, im in a writing mood, and just tell me if you want more information of Symantic & Nortan, or Avast! then just give us a yell, and ill happily do it Very Happy

When fail is so epic it should be quoted in bold. AVG isnt, never were and never will be better than Avast!.

Edit : darren, thanks, i ll pass, you have mistakenly named anti-virus product and anti-virus company...4x. That raises doubts if you know what you are talking about.

hence why Symantic is the company, with the Anti Virus protection "Symantic" AND "Nortan" are run my Symantic rambo

My school uses "Symactic" as an antivirus It's real, and really horrible Wink

Well, lets not get off topic here.

I use to use avg and that worked fine for me too.
i actually still have avg on my older computer and it's still working fine.
i just went with avast when i got my new computer like 6 months ago and it works great for me.

so anyway was the question answered so i can lock this. there no reason to go into some full blown discussion on what virus protection is better and disagreements. use what works for you the best thats all i can say.

I had to go on it on another browser.

That problem was caused by Google a few months ago, not relevant to now, as it's been corrected Wink
