Help - Virus error message concerning worler.com?

    Hey IT savvy Hubbers
    I keep getting an anti-virus blocked message while reading different hubs stating -"Network traffic from worler.com matches the signature of a known attack."

    Is this a true virus attack or it is Norton being crazy and blocking something it should not be?

      Money Glitch you really need to pop over onto the thread http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70100?p … ost1527879 as your computer might be compromised.

    Just for interest, is everyone who is getting attacked using Firefox?

      I had a scary warning this morning about a hubpage wanting to attack with a trojan.  It offered me options like quit or proceeding under caution - a red IE message - never seen it before.

      My first thought was "what the hell are Google doing to us now" - which is slightly paranoid I suppose.

        So were a couple of others, but then again I suppose most Hubpages users are. Probably no connection...

          Its just that I did a search for the "Trojan.JS.Iframe.rr" and there are a few results. I did the same search and added "Firefox" (without the quotes) and there were a few results. Then I replaced Firefox with firstly Chrome, then IE, then Opera, then Safari and there are no sign of the malware in the results.

          That suggests to me there might be a security gap in Firefox.

    So you're using Internet Explorer?

      Yes. It came free with my computer.

        LOL, came free with mine too - still wouldn't want to use it! Anyway no it was just an idea I had that maybe this trojan was getting in through a specific browser...but you've just blown a hole in that theory.
        Anyone else had issues?
        I haven't, at least not yet. Using Chrome.
