    Virus on JI?

    I've been getting a weird error message when I try to reach the forums and Avast is blocking JI and claims the site contains a trojan (no, not Sanchez, Turner or McKnight). Just a heads up.

    It's a false positive. Don't worry about it.

    I haven't had this problem but I just forwarded this thread to our webmaster and we are checking it out. What specifically is happening?

    I use AVG and the warning came up that it blocked/quarantined a virus. Of course it was one of those warnings in bright red letters with a red border around the box.

    I did not record the content of the warning. That's all I can tell you right now.

    Same here with my AVG for Android. Doesn't like the JI homepage and sends me to a safe page instead.

    I got it as well. It sounded like it was a redirect spy ware kind of thing. Only happened once for me.

    None of you who get it are Apple/Mac users?

    No one believes you. You've never been anywhere near a Trojan.

    It's the Trojan Rabbit that Hunter maliciously set up here before the trade.

    my AVG anti virus has picked up something a few times in the past couple of days.

    I know I had this issue with JI once before but nothing came of it then so I'm not too concerned.

    I prefer cheaper alternatives.

    For me I could get to jetsinsider.com fine, but clicking onto forums and reading some of the ridiculous banter in a given thread is when the avast warning came up. I have tried with firefox, ie and safari and the same thing happens. I just now downloaded google chrome on my laptop and desktop and it seems to have no problem. Hope this helps. No back to reading how Mike T should be fired.

    I suppose when there's no fear of impregnating one's hand, that is a wise financial decision.

    I got it Sooth on my office computer which we had to promptly send to our I.T. service who cleaned it out for me.

    What I got was a trojan that blocked access to all .exe programs (which is essential to our business), and it loaded something called "Live Security Platinum"....Google it, it's a real pain in the a$$....

    My computer at work crashed yesterday morning due to a virus. IT came and had to replace my hard drive. Could be a coincidence, but JI is one of the few websites i use while at work..
