Photo Bucket Virus
Mods and anyone else. I visit another forum for farming with my horses. This was posted there, I copied and am pasting it here. Do not know anything more about it. I am not a photo bucket user, but know there are many that do and thought a word to the wise. Those of you that know the ins and outs of computers, how about it?
Please be aware that Photobucket.com has an imbedded virus, as of last night.
If you have pics there, like I do, and try to copy a link for posting a pic, a "Photobucket Support" window will pop-up to alert you to the possibility of a virus, and advise you to click on it to download the cure.
DO NOT DO IT !
SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATELY, AND GET OUT OF DODGE !
AND DO NOT INSTALL THE MALWAREBYTES "CURE", OFFERED.
The cure is the virus, and it's trying to extort $$$ for the mal(bad)ware download.
I would also immediately run a virus scan on my box ASAP I rebooted.
Read about it further here, where I did, on the Ruger Forum:
If your computer gets infected, read this first for removal instructions:
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
