Haha, I had that screen pop up too, and I use a Mac!  Let me tell you, that was confusing!

lucky you.  if I had a Mac, I wouldn't be so worried about a virus.  Tongue

and on a side note, not sure if this has anything to do with this issue or not, but am I the only one noticing the missing ads?

I'm glad to see it's not just me that's been getting some kind of notice. I have Avast for virus protection. Several times I've come to Craftster and Avast has stopped the connection due to a trojan virus.

Avast is what we use as well.  It wasn't detecting it earlier last week, but Wednesday's (I think) update started catching it for me.

This is going to sound like a gloat, but it isn't, honestly Wink

I use Firefox on Vista, and have never had this happen here or on any other sites. I use Kaspersky full internet security suite and I swear it reaches the parts McAfee *spit* never does! I used Mcafee religiously before, read up on reviews and switched to Kaspersky - it immediately found a load of stuff McAfee had let through.

hmm... this has never happened but i noticed sometimes a little white screen suddenly pops up, then closes itself, i guess or antivirus or something closes it.

ive never had this pop up. i use firefox, avast ,and SUPERantispyware.

how many of you that get the pop up use internet explorer? firefox is much safer than IE and doesnt let nearly as many things that are in websites get through to your computer.

as it has been said...many times now...we're not 100% sure that the browser has much to do with it.  I've stated (along with others) that I use Fire Fox and have got this pop-up and another version many times on here as well as other sites.  now, again, if those of you who are still getting this scan while using Fire Fox could PLEASE follow the instructions below and let us know if it changes anything, it would be much appreciated and could be used as a kind of quick fix until the issue is finally dealt with within the site itself.

click the following things: Tools > Options > Advanced.  under "Advanced", you'll find 3 subsections with check boxes in each.  the first one is called "Accessibility" and the third check box down says "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page".  make sure it's checked.  it wasn't before when I was getting these scans, but now that it is, I haven't seen any.  can any of you do that for me and see if it changes anything for you?

if you use IE, Opera, Safari, Google Chrome, etc., I don't know anything about them so I don't know if there is a similar setting.

again, it is not the web browser, it is not the operating system (though getting it on a Mac is a little strange), it is something within the site itself.  nothing that the anyone running the site did, it happens to a lot of sites and it is usually done by some stupid hackers getting their jollies.

Just an update for you guys!  Thanks again for hanging in there with us.

We shut down the infected part of the system yesterday evening, so no one should have experienced the issue throughout the night last night.  We're back in the office again this morning and back on its case.
