  • Possible Adware Hack?

    I had an email from a member who said:

    whenever I come to this site, our computer gets infected with a adware program called xp antivirus 08.

    Is it possible to scan the VB software to see if someone has added something malicious?

    I have closed the forum while I try and sort something out as I don't want people getting infected from our site.

    We are currently running 3.7.0

    I do not see how that is possible with the default vB code. Have you installed any add-ons or template mods?

      There are a couple of basic add-ons that I carried over when I upgraded but I haven't added anything new.

      I'll try upgrading to the newer version of VB and see what happens.
