    Beware! Malware on Penddraig Chronicles Pages

    Post by JustTheFacts on Tue Jul 22, 2014 9:29 am

    Google Chrome informed me that the software that was attempting to download on my pc was from a malware distributor that had penetrated the page I was on... one of the Chronicle pages

    So PLease, don't read anything from that thread until it is declared safe Meh !

    I know it's not something people are checking out - I didn't expect people to. But I'd hate this to be the day someone thought to take a peak!  EEK! 

    And it almost got me!! So close! Total freak out!  Spooky bats

    I think that what you saw (and clicked on) was one of the pop-up ads that we get here because this is a free forum.  I can't tell you to install an ad-blocker like AdBlock Plus, but I can say that I've never seen one of the ads here because I have one installed Whistle

    Okay... I thought McAfee was supposed to do that? It didn't come up with any messages, which peeved me! What am I paying them for if they didn't stop things like this?

    How will I know if it's safe to use the page again? Suggestions? Safe as long I don't let it download stuff?

    Cool! Well, I installed the Adblocker, and I don't see anything to click lol. Had the thing installed for about one minute when came back at me with a couple of hundred ads blocked!  Huh?
