    Clicked on a Google link to the other site when I was doing some research on pocket bike engines and my Symantec anti-virus went nuts. The site tried to drop three infected files on my PC.

    I doubt this was done purposely, the server that hosts their site probably got hacked.

    I wouldn't visit the site until they get it cleaned up.

    I don't think it's the site, it's a script in one of the ads. Anyway, I run No Script so NO worries.

    Are you using IE or something? I'm getting no infestation.

    Negatory good buddy - still infected.

    First I get an error from Adobe Acrobat that the file is not supported or some BS.

    Then Symantec kicks in and tells me that inWas.swf (an adobe shockwave flash file) is infected with bloodhound.exploit.193 and oneChunks.jar (java file) is infected with trojan.byteverify

    Don't know how malicious these bugs are, just wanted to let you guys know.

    Yeppers. My AV (Avast) also screams when going to that site. No damage cuz Avast does it job.
  6. I have malwarebytes antivirus and it protects my computer.

    I use every day all day and have no virus messages or any problems, others have said they did but it was a ad, not a virus, and it was removed and taken care and the site is clean and safe to use.

    Malwarebytes Anti-malware is a free program that will clean the malware from your computer. Microsoft now has free antivirus software called "Microsoft Security Essentials" that can be downloaded and installed for free to anyone running a legal copy of XP, Vista, or Windows 7. It's very good and does not slow down your computer like McAfee or Norton does.

    That's one thing I like about AVG, it does not slow down your computer. I just question it's protection level. Seems to catch a lot of stuff. No problems since I started using it!

    I've tried the site at least a dozen times since this was posted.

    I have never once has any sort of problem.

    You guys should be running firefox and "NoScript". As well as AdBlock Plus.

    Working perfectly fine. NoScript is key, I would NEVER surf the web without it.

    Anyway that malware is now gone.
