Re: Site Feedback/Questions
I posted what happened to my computer after leaving Redszone up & running for about 4 - 5 hours in the SunDeck forum. NO CLUE if it actually happened due to Redszone, but I spent 4 - 5 hours last night getting rid of a bunch of malware, then today noticed that I had a "redirect" trojan/virus/whatever (in other words when doing any search engine searches, when I would click on the results, I would immediately be redirected to a fake page). Took me FOREVER to get rid of it (finally got rid of it about 30 min. ago, if that and started trying around 6 this evening). Finally found a program called Hitman Pro that did the trick the SECOND time I did a scan w/it (I think I made a mistake while deleting the stuff that it found after the first scan). I tried everything minus the kitchen sink (prog. after prog. after prog.) and though they ALL found crap like cookies and non-major threats, the 2nd scan with the Hman FINALLY appears to have found the offender (crossing my fingers).
Like I said, I'm not blaming Redszone, but it IS weird that I got this infection somewhere between the start of Sat. game and the games conclusion and this is the site I was on (and left on) while I was away watching the game, and it appears that between that same time period and throughout Sunday, all these users are getting these "attack" notifications/warnings. Factually, all I know is that Pre-game Sat., no computer/internet problems....post game, TONS of problems, malware up the butt. And HOURS of work getting rid of everything (IF I even HAVE gotten rid of everything, I sure am hoping - at least I appear to have gotten rid of the worst of it).
Boss-Hog, I'll be really interested in what you find out after your host does/completes their malware scan. Everyone else, just be cautious and if anyone DOES end up having problems and you need some help, PM me, I check RZ daily and believe me, I learned a TON while trying a TON of things getting my crap back to normal, so maybe I can save you a ton of time. Hopefully noone else will have any problems though!
