    Recent Spam Attacks

    Now as most of you know, this website has suffered some recent spam threads about this or that, and I know the TA's are doing all they can. But until those threads are deleted, I urge everyone not to click on ANY of the links posted. I have quite the security system on my computer, and I decided to click on a link, (it was porn )and immediatly my security stuff said "trojan found". Some of these viruses can be almost harmless or eat at your computer's hardrive. So for the sake of everyone else's computer here at WaW, and for anyone else who reads this, it would be beneficial for everyone to just ignore that stuff.

    AVG has free software...google "AVG FREE EDITION", it's what I use, amongst other things. I'm virus free!

    And Azreal, why were you clicking that link?

    But yeah, MAKE SURE TO REPORT THE POSTS--I ususally try to a few times, just to irritate the admins so they'll get rid of it sooner. What about blocking certain "keywords" they like to use, so they go "asterisk"? Would that potentially make their links not work?

    I find that every few months a good online scan in additon to the free download scans helps... sometimes things happen to those common AV programs.

    Hit up most of the big name sites for a free online scan. I've used http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ several times, and it's always worked well, ocasionaly it hits something that AVG misses.

    You can use Active Virus Shield, which is a free AV program, and has the same engine of the Kaspersky Anti-Virus.

    If you can spend a few bucks for the full program, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, I'd advise you to do. It's very effective, though its not the fastest for scanning the entire hard drive.

    I've got Norton Internet Security 2007, $50 for a three-computer license version. Firewall, AV, and anti-spyware in one. I have had Ad-Aware catch one thing that got by NIS, but other then that, I haven't had a problem.

    Hope they're enjoying themselves spamming, I don't see it accomplishing anything.

    In fact, I find it kind of funny really.

    I actually noticed that when I tried to link to an image with as s in it, the image would not link. Let's try it:

    www.thisisnotspam.com/***-cream.html


    Sionnach: I have come to the conclusion that you [Paasky] are a complete nutcase.
    Grunty: Paasky is officialy insane. It wasn't official until somone like me said it. I'm bad but Paasky is bloody looney.
    KiMo: Nah nothing against you... I think your insane, that's all.

    Trend micro has an excellent web-based virus and spam scan. I can be found at:

    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    Oops, just saw Refaim's post above with the same site.

    Yes,
    I am still alive, but swamped with work still. It just does not seem to end. But I can't complain as long as I have paying clients.

    I'll return one day.

    Yup, been around on and off (mainly off since then) but haven't been able to put much real time into any of the campaigns. I miss tanking with you guys. Hoping to have some time down the road, but not holding my breath......
