My anti-virus caught 5 different viruses from the forums. I have never seen such a thing coming from one site. This needs to get fixed right away.

My virus protection is always running and does a few scans throughout the day, but I just forced it to do a full computer scan. It didn't pick up anything, so either the problem is gone, or those viruses you got were not from visiting this site.

I do the same thing too. I was on this site going through the forums when all of a sudden my avg came up saying virus detected. It came up 5 different times. With five different viruses. I think it's this site because lately I've been having pop up and loading problems from only this site. And from none others. Here is the name of the all the different ones.

Real11[1].htm
Real[1].htm
Ms06067[1].htm
Ms07004[1].htm

It said that my JS/downloader agent found it. If that makes any sense.

I just got a virus alert from FH also!!

The past few weeks when running this site on IE I have been flooded with popups, adware, and all that crap on this site. So, I started using Firefox as my primary browser on my Windows PC.

Today I had a lapse and viewed the forums on IE and I got a virus alert. I am using Avira ANtiVir Personal by the way.

Any tips on what to do to get rid of this thing from my PC?

what thing? the antivirus? there are some mal-ware antivirus programs that you have to get rid of by google searching the instructions and then going into safe-mode to uninstall them.

Yeah me too! I have one machine using IE7 with AVG and another one running Firefox with Avast and I've never had any virus hits from this site.

I also access the site on a few other pc's with absolutely no problems.

If you get a virus alert, please pay attention to the name of the virus you see there. Also, if you know how to take a screenshot, please do that, and use the private messages mechanism to report it.
And please use the "contact us" form to report problems. You can also state your claims in the forum, but we the contact us is the best way to make sure the problem will be handled by the right guy.
Thanks

My problem was I was at work when my virus protection hit me with the warning, same thing 5 different problems that were caught. I have noticed the adds that are being loaded (several different load bars at the bottom of explorer that causes a very LONG page load delay. I have a feeling it is one specific ad that is causing the problem but it locked up my computer before i had a chance to see which string was causing the lock up- and eventual virus catch.

Whatever the problem it is a rare problem and for me it hasnt been duplicated. but i have a feeling the next time it gets caught, i will be at work again. It makes me shy away from logging on.

It was actually quite funny. I work next door to IT and a matter of moments after the Virus protection caught the virus I heard the IT door open and close. I was freaken scared to death.

Anyway I can say that there is no way the page delay should be that long. I have a direct connection to our server and sometimes it still takes 30 seconds to load a message thread.

I still manage to show up though- its the best fin forum there is.

I switched to Mozilla Firefox yesterday and so far no problems.

Screw Internet Explorer!

Same exact thing hear. I load up the forums and it keeps going back and forth on the loading bar. Then I got the 5 viruses. I guess I'm not the only one here.

Two quick things on this:

1. We've asked the ad-brokers we work with to check if any of their clients may be serving an ad with malicious content - unlikely - but they ought to check.

2. All ad-brokers serve ads these days using javascript, and it does slow the page download, in particular with IE. If you can spear $36 a yr, you can become a VIP and you will see no ads whatsover and therefore things will load alot faster - even with IE ;)

To stop the ads just download adblock plus add on for firefox, while paying no money.
