    This is not a Trojan... This is a Web Script of MMORPG.

    Yep, AVG is catching one or more Trojans from this site as of about 10 minutes ago.

    Getting a similar issue here.  It's asking to allow some sort of remote data plugin and AVG showing a virus!  I'm certainly not willing to give ANY site remote data control...

    Same here. Worked fine this morning now I get a browser exploit warning on Norton.

     

    It reads: MSIE ADODB. Stream Object File Installation Weakness

    Yup, me too on Kaspersky: detected Trojan program 'Exploit.JS.RealPlr.u'.

    I don't care if this is a legitimate script - I DON'T like this kind of warnings ( ever since the DNS cache poisining )

    Yep I also just got the kapersky warning for a trojan,wether it is legit or not I wont be allowing it on my pc,I pay for the secriuty on my pc for a reason so when it says its a trojan I take its word for it pure and simple.

    If someone had came up to me in 1980 when I was on my Atari 2600 and said we will be playing games with thousands of people at the same time.I guess my response would have been,"but I only have 2 joysticks"

    Not sure what you mean by "legit", but as far as it being acceptable, I don't think it is.  Someone on the site needs to do something so it remains safe, stable, and reliable.  Sites with unnecessary scripts and activeX controls are usually the ones you can't trust (not saying this is the case here, but many will find it fishy and avoid the site).  I really hope a mod looks at this ASAP and fixes the problem.  I don't like clicking "remove threat" every time I go to the homepage.  Maybe it's an issue with one of their MANY advertisements and banners...

    Wow its been awhile since this sites been hit with one of these.  I saw it on the front page as well.  I haven't seen it on the forums yet.

  • ThillianThillian Member UncommonPosts: 3,156

    AVG could be the worst fw ever created and wouldn't be surprised if its just a bad recognition. I have no warnings with symantec 2007.

    REALITY CHECK

    It appears some little script-kiddie found a way into our polls database table, the issue was anywhere you were seeing a poll.  We have removed the reference to the script from the database.

    For future reference, do not ever accept any scripts like this.  Our scripts should not give you these kind of warnings, ever.

    We are sorry about this and will be watching it very closely to see if future attacks occur.

    Points to the post from the Admin.  Oops?  lol  just poking fun.  Nothing ment by it.   If your using firefox that might be why your not seeing it.   I know in the past when this site was hit like every other day for a week or 2 straight firefox user's were saying they never saw anything.

    lol yeah, I'm using firefox and havent seen anything pop up, though is that necessarily a good or bad thing?

  • vitcvitc Member Posts: 8

    Thanks for fixing it...

    It is an ActiveX thing, so Firefox users are immune to it.  IE7 required you to accept the script from the top pop up bar warning.

    Firefox might have been immune, but my AVG wasn't happy with it and gave me 2 warnings on occasion.  Glad you guys tracked it down.

    No need to.

    I will personally never install or use Firefox.  Just personal peference.

    Some people like orange flavor, others like grape.  Some like both... for me, I like IE.

    You couldn't have gave any more of worst advice. You could have caused members to get a virus. You don't just accept scripts like that, it scares me that you are an administrator for any site. At least know your viruses and the warnings of them before offering any help.
