    Malware?

    This site has some malware on it, and it is affecting me. It only happens on one of my PC's and is best described in this link


    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6547817


    Now, I don't have a Mac but the experience is the same in Chrome.


    The gist is every time I open the site I get this popup that essentially disables my browser and I have to crash it to go on.

    In my task manager I see this loaded whenever I open RZ

    Once I delete it it goes away.




    I don't have this experience at work since we have adblockers, wondering if anyone else has run across it?

    I get nothing like that from this site. Nothing unusual in task manager.

    I use Firefox+Noscript but I also tried in bare Chrome and didn't get anything. I'm using Windows.

    I don't believe that it's coming from this site, but I believe that something on this site is triggering the item on my machine.

    I've wiped it prior but it keeps returning, and always triggered by a visit in this site.

    I'll need to test it with FF and IE

    The igfxsrvc service has nothing to do with the site:

    http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/pr...xsrvc.exe.html

    No one else has reported this issue, so I'm not ready to escalate it to our host. I requested they run a malware scan of our site not too long ago, and it was clean. If anyone else is having this issue (or any other), please let me know.

    Thanks, I'll see if I can find it on my machine.

    It's pretty harmless but annoying.

    Westofyou,

    I've received pretty much the same thing many times (50+ easy) in the last few months (not necessarily while I was on this site). Sometimes a person calls me immediately after, saying they are from Microsoft (In an obvious Indian accent) and they want to help me with my computer issues. Once they addressed me by my correct last name! I tell them they can't be from Microsoft and DO NOT ever call again.
    I run Malwarebytes and SpyBot, and it helps, at least for a while. I use Firefox and Chrome and it happens on both.

    This is when it's time to just format and start over....

    FYI: Received this while on RedsZone, but I had other tabs open and who knows where this pop-up came from or is it a virus. I did receive a call from India right after this popped up, she said she was from Microsoft, yea, right... This was Aug 6.
