site security breach?


Link Posted 29/06/2012 - 01:20
Hi all

I have recently tried to view a members photo on the opening page of the website and on clicking it to enlarge was greeted with it opening a link to a pornographic website

I have reported this and would like to ask has anyone else experienced this problem?

Everything seems okay here, Rob! The team are good at rectifying these things and giving you feedback, so don't worry... In the meantime, run a malware check. If you don't already have one, try MALWAREBYTES.

Morning, I have at the top of the page this message from McAfee

"We tested this page and blocked content that comes from potentially dangerous or suspicious sites. Allow this content only if you are sure it comes from safe sites".

Funnily enough just as I clicked on this thread an application simply called 'cockriders.apk' downloaded itself to my phone. I've been getting security messages when accessing this site since yesterday, but just ignored them!

I have had 3 messages since last night that I have now traced back here. To the best of my knowledge - my security measures have blocked all attempts to download anything so far but I have had 2 malicious program warnings and one Trojan
No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

I'm rather disappointed!!... I haven't had any porn sites pop up on my netbook or my desktop!!... I think I'll report you all to the mods - seems to be a bit of favouritism going on here!!

A little to much excitement for me these days lol.

Thanks for the advice Steven9761. I have downloaded a malware program and thankfully it found nothing

Rob - I tend to run my malware program just before I go to bed every night. Since the missus has a tendency to do a lot of internet shopping from reputable sites whilst I'm at work, and chatting with her friends in Thailand, I pretty much know where any potential threats are coming from on the home pc. The office pc (I'm on it now) tends to get bombarded with spam, and other sorts of rubbish due to the fact that I work for an international courier company. Thankfully, the foreign-language messages and the likes get put through a translation program first. Any that (for whatever reason) will not translate from the native language into English gets consigned to Room 101!!

Strangely I logged in a few days ago 26/06/2012 to be exact and as soon as I hit the site AVG immediately moved the following files to the virus vault.
Win32Cryptor and Script/PDF.exploit.Av
My firewall also prevented A java script from running 0.6390717192985396h7i.exe.
Needless to say I immediately killed my network connection ran scans etc and all has been ok since.
Interestingly a few days earlier I had had the "microsoft engineers" ring me about my machine being infected and they were going to kindly fix it for me.

Sorry to be negative, but to be honest there is much, much better out there than Symantec.
IMHO AVG Free is much improved recently.

If you want to pay for one, this is very good (again IMHO):
