I'm also getting reports, from Malwarebytes, whenever I click on the link in the email to come to a thread on WipSPMBT (the only forum I look at.)

Malwarebytes is telling me that access to the websites "deloton.com" and "go.pushnative.com" is blocked.

Exclamation Re: Virus infection in this forum?

Shrapnel IS looking into this but so far they have not found any malware but the process is still ongoing. I personally have not seen any of these pop up ads and I'm on an off these forums 10-15 times a day ( or more )

My anti-virus (Kaspersky Internet Security) throws up a warning every time I visit a page in the forum. It recommends that I close each page I visit.

This information is shown in the report:

Download blocked

http:/forum.shrapnelgames.com/clientscript/vbulletin_read_marker.js?v=381

Object name: HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic

They're still looking and as long as people are reporting them I am passing them on.

And even today... Nice to see that I'm not only one who have warnings. Hopefully Shrapnelgames will find solution someday?

I thought the forums were down yesterday to fix this - apparently not...

Exclamation Re: Virus infection in this forum?

All I can tell you is what I have been told......"[] we have scoured the files – ALL FILES – in the forums and there are no instances of viruses. People should clear their cache and see if they are still having troubles. Andy had mentioned maybe ads showing on or site may cause the trouble. Google and Shrapnel are the only ads allowed on our site. We scanned our ad serving software and no problems there either."

All I can add to that is Andy reports
============
"Cleared cache and closed and reopened firefox.

privacy badger add-on to firefox is still showing the "coinhive.com" tracker (blocked)

No Coin add-on to firefox is still showing that a coin miner has been detected on the site, and blocked"
=============

but from my end I have had NO issues at all using Chrome or Internet Explorer or Edge.... 99% of the time I use Chrome but I tested with the other 2 and same result...nothing

So it still remains a baffling mystery but the attempts to sort it out have not been abandoned

Don

FWIW I have added Privacy Badger to my Chrome and I'll see what pops up..so far nothing at all
