    At this moment, it contains a malicious post from a user called "AssdfreBok" and redirects you to a site that prompts you to install software on your system. If you end up there, don't install anything! Your browser will probably end up in an infinite loop of message alert boxes, and you will have to forcefully shut it down using ctrl+alt+del.

    I had the very same thing happen to me several times tonight. I was trying to access the Counter thread when it happened. Luckily my AVG anti virus caught it. I thought the wifey had downloaded something.

    I locked the Welcome Wagon until I can get that post removed.

    The Ex-member thread in the Counter that doesn't work is likely unrelated. That is a known bug in the current version of yabb. That is about the 3rd instance of that in the past year.

    I've removed the post and the user.
    Additionally I've added a bit of security to help avoid having
    it happen again.

    Thanks Ray, after an overnight virus scan...I found 3 trojans on my computer that AVG has removed. Maybe you could trace whoever that was and let some of us know where he lives. I'm sure we can convince him never to mess with KTOG again.

    Only kidding, a little. >:(

    Thanks Ray - that was fast.  :cool:

    I ran AVG last night and found nothing, and I had opened that page several times trying to delete the post.  Part of that spam-scam was an ad for a malware program.  Apparenty, it was telling me I had a non-existent trojan so it could sell me the software.  :-/

    TxC, I got that too. But I did find 3 trojans, it may be unrelated, I don't know.

    May NOT be fixed yet, I dunno. Just tried to welcome a new member and when I went to the thread...it wouldn't show. Can someone else look at the Welcome Wagon and check it out?
