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.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

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!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

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!
