Topic: Dangerous web site - AVOID IT!!

I occasionally visit www.thepeoplescube.com for grins. It's an extremely sarcastic site covering politics. This morning, after I was there, I got hit with all kinds of virus and malware warnings that could only be cured by purchasing their software. Nothing I did would remove it, including Eset antivirus & security, Spybot, etc. Fortunately, I had a backup and had to do a full partition restoration.

AVOID THIS WEB SITE AT ALL COSTS!!!!

Dave, which antivirus program were you using that didn't prevent your attack? My NIS has a firewall.

I use ESET Internet Security. It has a firewall that trapped a lot in the past. This is a Trojan that snuck through.
Anyway, the backup solved the problem, so no real harm done. It makes taking 20 minutes for a weekly total backup worth the time.
