Is it just me, or...?

Post  Feverdream on Wed Mar 18, 2009 11:03 am

It seems this board is responsible for the sheer amount of spyware and pop-ups bypassing my blocker. Lately, my firewall has been blocking ActiveX exploits that try to get in when I access this site. Is anyone else getting this? If so, is there any other kind of free forum application to use? Sorry for the complaints.

I have been having this problem as well. And, I just cleaned my system of all malware and spyware, and when I hit the forum it attempted to reinfect my system. Sad

I keep getting some pop ups as well and 1 tracking cookie that keeps showing up. The one thing that shows up the most is at times when I try to view a post or put one up I get redirected to some random bullshit pages.

I would strongly suggest, if you have any problems with adware, popups, trojans, etc to download Mozilla Firefox, and then install NoScript, and Ad Blocker Plus.

All free, all amazing, you wouldn't believe how much more wonderful your web browsing experience will be. You have to get used to NoScript at first, because it literally disables everything, but you see a nice list of what's blocked so you don't unblock www.pornospamz.com, but you can unblock www.youtube.com to watch some vids.
