Recently, I have been infected with some sort of malware... Now don't get me wrong.... But the time I got infected was the time when I was browsing at minitokyo and wikipedia.org. So my question iz...... Is it possible? Or was it just a coincidence?

I'm still suffering those programs right now... Malware.j and downloader.f.

Please help :sweat:

Every now and then there is a "bad ad" which when it loads will attempt to install a downloader trojan on your computer. Don't worry too much, it doesn't happen too often and they are very minimal risk and can be immediately quarantined with virtually any anti-virus software. When this happens, and you are sure that the only place the trojan/virus/spyware/etc. could have come from is MT, you should create a thread in the Bug Reports forum and include the ad information so the admins can block it.

Spybot and Ad-ware are both spyware removal programs, so they don't catch viruses, trojans or worms. To remove a virus you need an anti-virus program, such as Norton Antivirus (you have to pay for it, but it is excellent and the cost is only 40$ a year, it is the one I use), but the best freeware virus removal program in my opinion is AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition.

I have to say though, NEVER download a program that claims to be anti-virus or antispyware when it is not from a reputable company. If a program catches your eye and you think you may prefer it over the tried-and-true software, ask around and do a bit of research first, because there is a good chance it is loaded with malware. Also keep in mind that legitimate products never utilize pop-ups to try to make you download them, or scare tactics to try to make you execute them.

Yea... i have the ware that prevents these viruses....

But the main problem is that there is an advertisement here that is throwing the viruses secretly at members....

Yes i have been looking for the advertisement that is the root of this problem.. but it still catches me off guard..... The advertisaements at each pages changes from time to time.... so tracking the advertisement seem to be hard....

At the end of the day, i would always turn around and say.... "Egao Saku... "

another one i found out...

traffstats.biz

I hope this help...
The virus downloads itself when you press the forum link...
After that, if it is quarantine and deleted...
It stops downloading... but then it will happen again the next day...

Get Firefox and use their Adblock Plus plugin to block all those ads from loading. You won't even be able to see those ads at all (except the text based ads at the bottom).

So.... Are the admins ignoring this? Or maybe they are just a bit busy.... Please take action quickly!

Have been using Firefox since MTv2 and yet to get any viruses/worms/trojans. I use Norton Security for realtime protection and have AVG as a weekly system scanner while Norton's scan is scheduled daily.

Yeah, I have been getting security alerts from my computer (using Norton Internet Security) about the Downloader virus and another Adware program called "Adware.ZQuest" when I was browsing MT, and the latest incident happened just 2 hours ago. But luckily Norton Internet Security manages to delete the malware without much problem.

^_^ thats because your anti-virus successfully quarantine and delete it...
I think you didnt optionate it to alert you if it has succesfully deleted it...
I t only alerts you if the virus isnt quarantined...

If there was a quarantine and deletion, I believe there would have been a log made in the history.

My scan sweeps usually come out clean.
