I got it last night as well, my virus software caught it quarantined it right away as I have real tight contraints on my system, no harm to my system. Only item I had up and running was the Forum Site so I'm pretty certain it was from it.

Thanks Roy, it looks like a rogue ad slipped through on Google's ad network... from what I've read online, this is a nasty little piece of malware.

Question: Did any of you get a pop-up message while visiting this site that said you had a computer virus and needed to scan your computer? (One that was not your installed anti-virus software.)

I was hit about 4 days ago. When it hit, it closed the Farmall Cub window and opened the XP Internet Security 2012 window. From then on, every time I tried to open an IE window, all I could get was the malware. After about 24 hours of trying everything I could think of, I googled XP Internet Security 2012 on my iPad. I finally found a link that told me to register using a bogus key number. I did that and it went away. I then ran Sptbot SD, and that got rid of the malware (I think). :D

Spybot SD, sorry.

I will be using my iPad, exclusively, to access this site until this is resolved.

Sounds like you need to get rid of Google ad's, there are probably many others that have been hit and can't even post .

I have never seen a pop-up of any kind on this site.

I am using my business computer almost exclusively now. For the last three nights, when I open this site, my computer gets hit. Our companies' anti virus and malware software catches it as soon as the site opens. On my personal computers, I run malwarebytes. Its free and works great. I cant count the number of computers I have fixed with that software. Like everyone else has said, beware of the popups!!
I'll be drinking that free bubble up, and eatin that rainbow stew.

Norton just blocked an attempt on my computer. I jumped from main forum of Farmall Cub, to for sale. I see the history in Norton. Looks like it blocked an attack from zarerd,,,, dot com.?? Dennis, I have the IP address stored in Norton History if you like.

Wow :shock: :!:

I usually visit the forum in Opera v 11.60 on Windows Vista Business Edition with all patches. So far I have not seen this pop up or any popups on the forums. With luck Opera might be immune? I seldom use IE8, Safari, Chrome or FireFox on the forum mostly cause I like some of Opera's

I also use Malwarebytes, Spybot SD, SuperAntiSpyware in concert with System Mechanic Professional with System Shield and of course the basic Windows Defender. I haven't had a virus on my laptop as long as I have had it basically.

I was hit 2 nights ago while on the forum. Same thing, Win 7 Home Security. Took several hours to get my computer back up and running properly.

I'm not on my computer right now because I got it too. Said " XP antivirus 2012 alert. Internet explorer alert. Visiting this site may pose a security threat to your system". Well, it did. Not sure how to fix. I didn't click on anything to fix and now I can't open any programs at all. Later guys, this may take a while. :-( Grump

Is there going to be a warning posted or mass e-mail to warn other members and users of the problem until it is resolved. Could be a bunch of problems if it persists.

Would hate for it to affect anyone without the means to fix t.
