    In all my messing around trying to get rid of this thing, I never actually got a virus. It appeared from the code I removed that they were trying to load something that I am sure was malicious but because of some errors (in their code) it was not quite working.

    If you did actually catch something, I apologize. It is my opinion that they need to string these guys up when they are caught. My experience is that they get a slap on their hand (if that) and go on to do this kind of crap again.

    Thanks, again to everyone for hanging in there while this was being resolved....

    By the way. If you are getting an error message regarding a missing security token, please go to this thread for the resolution. I expect that the problems corrupted a lot of people's cookie from the forum.....

    As far as I can tell there is no mal-ware on my machine. Repeated sweeps w/ Webroot Internet Security Essentials (including two consecutive w/ the modem off) reveal no problem.

    I suspect that as I never opened the pop-up, the Trojan was blocked and the errors (in their code) made the second round of redirect fail.

    Thanks again.

    My antivirus did not discover any virus, but after a while my computer start to get nuts even when not visiting DC, it was too slow, it was way too much network traffic even when now using the Internet, and Winamp opened by itself. This happened before yesterday; yesterday I reinstalled the PC and did not visit DC until today. My computer works fine again.

    I am absolutely positive I picked up two related viruses. I specified them in an earlier post here. Win32/Zbot.gen!Y and Win32 Fake V.

    I know this because by coincidence my anti-virus software had run a routine once monthly scan the night before all this started and detected no problem.

    On going to DC something caused Real Player to attempt to open, and the anti-virus software popped up a warning, named the responsible virus, and asked me if I wanted to clean it.

    I then went in and scanned ALL the files of both hard drives, and turned up a second trojan--which as mentioned, had not been there the day before.

    Anyway, the problem appears to have been resolved. Deepest thanks to all who worked so hard to get rid of it and keep this place running.

    But I'm getting the following when I try to "Mark Forums Read:"

    Your submission could not be processed because a security token was invalid.

    If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.
    This didn't happen before yesterday.

    I was getting the same sort of pop-up, just starting yesterday. Did a full scan of my computer, which didn't find anything infected. Deleted/re-created the cookie for the DC forum, then reconnected today. No further problems. Unknown what it was. Unknown whether anything I did affected anything.

    Yup, mine is still doing the same thing even after going through the security token error procedure. Sent a report to admin, gonna wait till they get a chance to take a breath and fix it.

    Thanks for fighting the battle so hard guys!

    If running Firefox, I strongly recommend these two security 'add-ons':

    1) Adblock Plus
    2) NoScript

    I have not yet found a resolution to this problem. It is caused by a corrupted cookie and I assume that the trojan we had did something to corrupt that cookie. In the past when someone had any kind of security token problem, this procedure always corrected it. I'll keep looking into it but with work and all and being out next week, my time is limited. The only other thing I might suggest, at this time, is to delete ALL of your cookies and see if that might work. I'm not trying to ignore those of you that are having the problem, I have simply not run across another solution to security token problems.....

    Just an FYI, I've deleted ALL cookies and tried different browsers on different machines and it still gives me the same security token error.

    Get some rest, you earned it.
