Virus Threat

When I downloaded the site today - Sat, 22/05/10 - I received a virus threat warning. Just letting you know, never had that happen before here.

However, I left and came back and didn't receive a second warning. Thought I would tell you anyway.

i thought it was just a coincidence that it happened when i opened this site but now that rsn48 had something go off on the same day makes me think maybe it is on this site

....seems like no one else had it so probalby nothing to worry aobut

I had it happen to me, too, when I looked through the threads. I thought I was alone o_o Glad, and kinda scared, to see that's not the case. Only, it managed to get through somehow... I had to delete my user for the computer, and switch everything to another one.

I'll bring this to admin's attention but I really don't think there's anything to worry about with our site. I'm sure it's nothing more than a glitch. I've got bomber security on my laptop and no warnings of any sort have cropped up for me. Will post back with more info!

I haven't been here since I posted my "virus threat" warning, but when I came here today, I had the same warning happen. This issue should have been handled within 24 hours of the problem arising!
