You guys really need to shut the site down again.  I can not identify it directly but this site has a virus or something.  When I leave my browser on mmorpg.com, my cpu goes to 100% and the browser does very strange behavior when clicking on objects.

One of your sponsers has a key logger or trojan on the site.  You should not accept ads from companies outside of the United States.

    hrm...

    i tested this site on 4 machines using 3 different OS's and 4 different builds of IE and i do not expereince the symptoms you describe.  I also clicked a different advertisment on each test, so i don think sponsor links are the problem...

    do you have site advisor turned on in your virus scan?  It may be the problem....

    No problem over here either. Tested quite some times and problem free.

    I am not sure if it is a virus or not but when I click "Home" something tries to download to my computer but I never accept it. It just started happening a couple hours ago. The only way around this I have found is to just retype mmorpg.com every single time I want to view any topic. Kind of annoying but I enjoy the site.

    Because companies within the US are so trustworthy? *wink*

    Tested on a couple machines here in the EU and no issues.

    Funny you should say that, a moment ago when I clicked on a link to a forum post, I also got a file download window pop up...

  • labg11labg11 Member Posts: 84

    Try to run spybot s&d, nice freeware.

    Hmm i'm getting weird ascii code when trying to load pages on the site once in a while, weird.

    Could be conectivity issues since i'm downloading something quite big, but...still, weird behavior.

    MMO crew migth wanna check the site.

    We are currently experiencing a bit of technical difficulty. I'm not sure what the source is, but we are going to work toward tracking it down.  This is not, as far as I know, virus related.

    Yeah, seems more like a code thing, as if some links you click on are trying to download instead of visit the requested page. Then again, I ain't a programmer :D

    I don't have that problem... but half the time when I click to read something here, I get jargon like this...

    As far as i can see (im software dev) mmorpg.com uses gzip to pack pages sent to the user. Maybe response has bad - formatted header wich leads to strange behaviour.

  • JohnnyCacheJohnnyCache Member Posts: 96

    yeah, i got that code puke too, but only when using IE.  When using firefox, i do not get this.

    another reason to hate microsoft...

    I actually can't view anything in this thread after page 1, because of the download pop-up.

    If this keeps up, mmorpg.com will no longer be a homepage tab on my system.

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    This is not a virus.  What you are seeing is compressed (GZIP) data.  We saw this the other day, but basically one of our web servers was delivering malformed pages that your browser was unable to decompress, resulting in you seeing the compresed version (garbage).

    Is anyone still getting this now?  Unlike the other day I can't seem to replicate it on my end.

    Yup.  Seeing about 40% to 50% of the page changes I make.

    I just received it three times in a row (one click through the link for the homepage and two refreshes).  It's displaying http:/www.mmorpg.com in the address bar without any qualifiers.

  • AdminAdmin Administrator RarePosts: 5,607

    Ok, this should be fixed now.  It was one of our 3 web servers that run the site that needed to be restarted.  Please report it if you see this again.

    Since this is absolutely not a virus I am going to edit the topic of this thread (we really don't need the panic).  It is caused from some new software we installed on our web servers the other day that appears to randomly knock out page compression on a random web server.

    The "new software" wasn't by Microsoft was it?
