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.
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.

In his hub 'What We Don't Know About Google Panda?', Paul Edmondson points out that Google seems to expect sites to leap high above any bar that might reasonably be set for quality purposes.Paul seems less than happy with Google's attitude. He seems to think that if a page can somehow limp over...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...
