Have no idea if this is serious or not but over the past few days every time I receive an incoming message from Hub Pages it triggers my Anti virus Warnings, highlighting a Trojan and or a Worm.
Just a thought but can I ask what general Anti Virus protection Hubpages has in place to protect itself and Us from attack ?
After all as Hubpages climbs the ladder of popularity it is only logical it will attract the attention of the 'Hit Squads' out there who think it smart and/or clever to spread viruses and the like.
I am almost used to Spyware being attached to practically every link posted and that through the tag words my machine is inundated with adverts and pop ups, but these warnings appear to indicate a more serious attack.
I'd hate to have to Bin HubPages just to protect the more important data on my machine.
So can somebody set my mind at reast please !
You might have spyware on your computer - have you tried to run Ad-adware?
I don't have this problem with Hubpages.
Definitely check for Spy-ware. I have had e-mails in the past that would "mimic e-mail addresses" in the title and they were not what they presented. May not have anything to do with hubpages. Like the others, I have not had this happen with HP.
Thanks for all the helpful suggestions, I've had a systems wide clean up, binned all unnecessary and aquired Cookies, cleaned out trash, and compressed all the empy space as well as doing a full system scan and so far all seems quiet.
I think I may have hit a link that was part spyware and it caused the bells and whistles to sound.
It also serves as a timely reminder to do regular back ups...One day I'm going to have a machine that is just for my work, it will never be connected to the Internet and therefore should never get contaminated.

Freedom of expression maybe fair but with the recent anti-Prophet film and the cartoons against Islam in France, isn't it more than a coincidence to believe this is normal happenings and Islam is really under attack?
