If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

I"m getting a Trojan Virus warning on every page I go to on this site?
Anyone else getting it?

Not getting the warning but it is behaving badly. Slow to come up. Came up with some interesting colors, which disappeared after I went into a post. :?

I know this is OT but I thought I should let everyone know.

Maybe you are right Mark, but I'm going across a corporate firewall. Here's the error I got when I access any ThisisMS page:

Part of this page has been blocked due to the following reason: Virus Detected! The page or file you requested is infected with the following virus: Trojan.js.Redirector.ar.


I don't get errors from any other site.

I get no errors whatsoever. My virus definitions are always up to date and my computer scans completely every night. I'm very vigilant in keeping my computer protected. I think you probably picked up something somewhere else. I've never heard of anyone here having any troubles like you are having.

I am pretty tight with my security (actually, my machine is like Ft. Knox - before all the gold disappeared...), but I had big slow-downs on here over the week-end, and last night, briefly had a colour change.

I am fire-walled, proxied, and have real-time scanning, along with a full, deep scan every night. Just be careful of links.

A few days ago my anti-virus software sent me an alert that it had detected and eradicated (or something) the Trojan virus when I was on this site.

I got a trojan virus today. It appeared to happen after I replied to a thread and used the 'quote' feature.
I emailed the admins and webmaster.
Symptoms are that when you use google it doesn't go tot he page you click on after a search, plus my malwarebytes and spybot programs (both free very highly recommended cleaners) quit working.
BTW, I am a software engineer, or can't I say that now that I am on disability? lol

Hi all, thanks for your reports-- I don't see anything on analysis, both on the site and on the server. It IS possible that an ad was using some code that triggered the warning, but Google is pretty good at catching that. I'm a little worried that people saw different colors last night-- there were no changes to the code to merit that.

What colors did it change to? Did EVERYONE see it? How long did that last?

And if you're getting the virus warning, does it happen on EVERY page (including the home page?)

Thanks so much for your help!
