Malware attack

Recommended Posts

Whilst browsing the forum, I had my Norton pop and say it had stopped an attack.




Unfortunately this isn't the first time while being on this site.


Before anyone suggests that it maybe because my history has activated "dodgy or adult related" advertising, it wasn't. And yes I had other browser windows open, but they had been open for a fair while and had only been on a new window with HMVF for few minutes before the attack.


I am aware that the forum doesn't have any hold over what is advertised, and that there is an increased activity of malware being hidden in online adverts.


The main reason for this post is to just warn that there is more reason to protect your devices. No I don't have shares in security apps etc.
