    PC Virus Attack

    The last 3 days that I have come to the Simple Living forums I've received a warning as soon as I get here that my virus protection has just blocked an attack on my computer.

    What's up? Is there a virus here? Anyone else getting the same alert?

    I haven't seen anything like that. If anyone else does, could you post the details here, or send me a message?

    I got that notice too when opening this site today; my anti-virus program (Avast!) said that it just blocked a Trojan horse virus.

    I got it 15" ago. It was Blackhole Exploit Kit Detection. It is the #3 virus/threat at AVG.

    Something strange happened late last night as I was finishing up here. A single line message/warning displayed across the screen. It consisted of a message (don't remember what it said), and a series of HTML slashes, dots, etc. I was unable to access the forum after that.

    Prior to the message displaying, pages were loading excessively slow, then not at all.

    For the first time, I was just notified upon accessing this site, that Norton had stopped a virus. I took a few seconds to locate a piece of paper to copy down the Norton message, so noted only that the last words were "web toolkit 20."

    I have the notepaper handy now.

    Just happened again. Norton identified it as Blackhole Tool Kit Website 20.

    AVG, just notified me (upon logging-in on the forum), that a thread was blocked.

    I'm sorry, Alan, I see I made a boo-boo in my spelling. I meant to say, threat.
