Trojan Virus


Berta

Question

I usually click in directly from AOL and dont get the home page- I go directly to the forums-

But I used IE to show someone the Homepage and immediately- as soon as the Microsoft ticker came up which I didnt click on- my Security Program warned me of the Trojan virus which I immediately deleted and scanned my 115,000 files right away-even though my security program was set to do that an hour later (I scan for security problems every day).

I did not associate this with hadit until it happened again today-

the name MauriceHurst also pops up as a www site on my PC same time as the microsoft ticker-

on the Home page-

and then in less than a second the Trojan Virus warning appears.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Thank God for Security programs- I have plenty of them-you can never have enough.

Berta;

I had no problems. I even saved the files and manually scanned them.

It's possible, but more likely an False Positive. What program? By any chance MS Defender?

Berta,

Yes, I experienced a similar problem last night. Whenever I logged on or off the hadit.com forum yesterday I got a message from McAfee VirusScan warning me it had blocked a trojan virus. I sent a PM to Tbird letting him know of the problem.

The forum seems to be working OK today. ;)

If you run across a virus be sure and email T-Bird so that she can put the tech support on it. Someone by design or as a victim themselves probably put something out that was not safe.

I have been away since Saturday and have not had that problem.

Thanks for alerting us

I had a similar problem when I logged on my virus protection program lit up and said there was a potential problem.

There is a "MS Data Access - Remote Data Services Data Control" Request for Active X. What that is I don't know. Data Feed for RSS Feed?

I don't think it's a Trojan or Virus. Just say NO to it.

TBird will be back tomorrow.

I get the same thing Dataman cited but it (popup) was blocked automatically.

It's probably not a Trojan or virus, just some website/HTML code needing attention.

Lots of AV programs misidentify what's going on and cause annoying false alarms. I dumped one brand of "Internet Security" software partly due to that.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
