If you guys have a strange ad to that leads to the file is called a pdf.php, which automatically appeared when the next ad loads, when it loads, EXIT IT OUT QUICK!! My computer got infected with spyware this morning when I was looking threw pictures on dA. Luckily my McAfee caught it, but it was a Trojan. Then all of sudden, spyware is popping out of the no where. I scan my Ad-ware but I accidentally restore it. But I've been seeing a bunch of pop-ups and it almost crashed my computer and it also crashed my FireFox. I rescanned my McAfee and there was no viruses, I also rescanned Ad-ware and I removed it, and guess what, it kept coming back! Couple hours later, after I ate dinner with my family, I realized my computer was reset by itself, and and McAfee officially removed the Trojan. I already told the Admins about this though and I do hope they'll remove that link quick, so if you have this, PLEASE report it to the staff members or contact them VIA on Help Desk. I like to call this virus a "Christmas Witching Hour Trojan" because every after Midnight it pops up like it's nothing. This happened to me for a second time, so I dunno what was going on.

I will post this in the News on dA and tell everyone about this. Thank you and have a safety Merry Christmas! =D

EDIT: The news post is available if you guys wanted to read: news.deviantart.com/article/65…

NoScript + AdblockPlus is your friend when it comes to Firefox, along with smart browsing practices. :P

(... and if you still get infected after that, I hope you get a mac.)

Yeah. It's a good thing that your computer isn't infected...yet...mine is. That stupid pop-up came out of the no where when I tried my new phone for Christmas.

You should try Noscripts. It can mess up a few pages for you, but it works pretty well.

Thanks for informing me about this. I also start on scanning my computer for viruses since I do that every week. and if you need help, I can also contact to Help Desk so they can remove that. Because some ads could be ok to accept, but those who had malicious threats should be reported. ;3 :thumbsup:

Yeah, I already post a forum on the "Inappropriate Ad" thread about this. I do hope the Admin sees it.
