Virus Warning

After visiting the black band project web site, I ended up with 50 trojan viruses, If you been there you may want to run virus scan. Justa warning. My computer froze up, I was pissed. Let me know if this has happened to you.

    Visited the site on 3 different computers all running 3 different virus programs. No problems with viruses or trojans. PC1 - laptop using Eset NOD32, PC2 - desktop running AVG 8.5 Free Ed., PC3 - desktop running Symantec Security Client. Just checked again before writing this reply on my laptop and still no problems.

    My Norton anti-virus didn't catch it either, it wasn't until I ran scripts that a mailicious software warning popped up. I'd run AV anyway.

    Did you get an email from them, or just visit the site?

    Virus scan picked up nothing on the computer that I browsed all over the site, signed up, received the email, clicked the link the email to watch the video, etc.... image

    Yeah, nothing on my virus scan either. The Trojans must have come from another place, that's all I can think of since nobody else is infected.

    My scan runs every day, and no warning on it.

    its posible that an advertisement on the site comes from an ad company, the add company might have been compromised and you got an infected banner before they detected the attack.
