    Are you saying that full scan with Avast isn't enough? :E

    Rushter removed the threat from the servers, but a ton of us are still infected.

    If you run firefox or ie, there's a good chance you have it if you didn't have java cacheing disabled.

    Chrome users seem to be fine as long as they didn't accept the applet.

Proof of concept: I was at a presentation by some security researchers who hijacked the Torpig botnet, one of the chat logs or emails that was stolen by the bot said something along the lines of, "I've finally gotten that virus off my machine." I believe the researchers stumbled across that line while grepping to count occurrences of the word 'virus' to get an idea about how many people thought they might be infected, but my memory of the presentation's a little hazy. Anyways it seems unethical to me to hide this in the feedback forum; it should be on the front page and displayed as a forum announcement. Given that this is the third time I recall this site (or an ad partner) spreading malware, maybe it's also time to start looking into how to advertise without requiring scripts. Just providing my feedback because of where the thread is located.

    Agreed RE the announcement. I'm just glad I saw the thread Bowser posted in the SPF before it was deleted...

    Java exploits on the site?

    Hey guys,

    I logged in today and got a java exploit from the forums.

    It came up as: Exploit:Java/CVE-2012-0507.D -- Rated as Severe.

    I cleaned it once, closed my browser and only opened the forums to make sure it was coming the forums and it is. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up because it may be coming from one of the ads on the site. I am on my friends laptop and he doesn't have ad block installed, so that's the only thing I can think it is.

    Right on. If the MS essentials pick it up and I remove it, I don't have to do all the things you said in the post right?

    Clear your java cache and turn off java cacheing.
