Exclamation 'Little incodent' on here a few weeks back if u know what i think u should read in!

sponsored links

As some of u may well remember a few weeks back some forums on here where hacked after smurfy's password was stolen well the hacker had put a post up that led everyone 'that sore it' to read it and if u did u may remember a little pixel started bouncing around the screen and loads of windows started popping up which caused your computer to crash. I then run a virus check using 'Norton Anti Virus' and it did not find anything wrong. So i thought nothing of it, then on thursday night my computer just shut itself down and kept re-booting over and over something had wiped my DMOS and BIOS and left my processor cold and after spending hours on trying to get it up and running i gave up. My computer is on a network of 4 computers and slowly one by one the same thing has happened now i only have one left up and running. But the only reason i suspect their was a virus embedded in this post which caused the computers to die. is that the second computer on my network that died suddenly had loads of white lines come up over the screen and inside the white lines was a little pixel bouncing around! So everybody YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! this is a very destructive virus! But it may have not been the virus in the post but looks that way! I would advise everyone to do a viruse check before it is too late! I hope by doing this it will save u alot of time and hassel thanks.

Time and time again I have advised to turn off ActiveX Active scripting and Java scripting if you insist on using IE. I would also strongly advise reading this post *********** and follow the instructions for the registery hack.

Do this on all except one of the accounts on your computer. The one that you don't do it on must have Admin rights and use this account only for accessing the windows update site. Don't use it for any other site and don't use Outlook or Outlook Express on this account.

Doing this would probably have prevented the problems that vanishing_master experienced though there is no guarantee of this.

Well i am still here and have not had any of those symptoms tho i have reformated my h/d but this was done at least 4-5 days after the said event

Also after the said event I ran a full virus scan and trojan scan which all came up clean. From what me and another mod think it was just a simple case of a certain website stealing cookies unfortunatley forum rules dont allow me to post
