Virus Warning: Do Not Open ANY of the Casino Threads

Those SPAM threads have html code which is redirecting you to another site and will try to install a virus. My anti-virus software, AVG caught it!

If you did view any of them, please run update your anti-virus software and run it immediately.

Thanks, I just wish it was on the front page. I wonder if there is anyway to stick it up there.

What were the titles and/or usernames for them? Does it install automatically if you just open the thread, or was it if you clicked a link?

The user id is "appetit"

The title of the thread is gambling related

When you open the thread, it immediately redirects you to another site.

Dear Howard,

I have to really wonder about the design of this site that permits third parties to insert redirect scripts through a message board.

The message board is getting really cluttered up with vendor ads, and no one seems to do anything about it.
