What are these newfangled antivirus programs and scans that you speak of? Is this something I should have? Shocked

Maybe I'll purchase something like that....just gotta wait on my big check to come in from that government official in Zambia. I sent him my bank info and the transfer fee months ago....so surely it should be here any day

HAHAHA! Good luck!

But for anyone who does NOT have virus protection...this is a good FREE one.

I am still getting the threat when I visit the home page.

I do understand. I have cleaned my cache, updated my antivirus definitions, etc.

The only thing I can think of is that the malicious code keeps coming back to PSC.

Is there anyway to stop it from keep coming back?

Anyone using Opera is getting this.

Something needs to be done, or it will be the death of PSC.

Did anyone else receive the following letter in their inbox?

--------------

Damn it, sometimes I feel like such a failure! Every other virus finds a thriving site, disrupts business, scares off members...you know, does what a virus is supposed to do.
I go and find a site where there's no business left to disrupt and the majority of members have already been
scared off, probably by a more successful virus. I'm just no good at this! And as if that wasn't embarrassing enough, it appears that I've actually brought life back into a formerly dead forum. Isn't that the opposite of what I'm meant to do?
I'm such a failure!
Don't waste your time trying to get rid of me. I'll let myself out.

Sincerely,
The Virus

Might have been a ploy to get everyone's attention for the 2012 Annual Reunion Competition....finally.

Currently all infected pages have been disinfected.

PSC owners will/are contacting server host to take further measures against this threat.

As for the opera warning, opera takes advise from avg.
As avg lists photoshopcontest.com as having a threat in the last 7 days, it results in that warning.
