    Lightbulb Was your computer infected by the recent iframe injection?

    Users who are using a Linux or Mac operating system, you were not infected.
    The recent iframe injection allowed a file to be pulled from a 3rd party server, causing an infection on (some) Windows systems.


    If you are not running antivirus software on your Windows system and you consider yourself a basic user, you should look at installing Microsoft Security Essentials. It is free.

    Those of you that believe your computer has been infected, run a full scan using the antivirus software currently installed on your system or after installing Microsoft Security Essentials.
    If you do not want to install a full antivirus program to your computer, you can run a virus scan from BitDefender within your internet browser. It will ask you to install a plugin to be able to scan your computer, but will not install a full virus scanning product. You can run the scan at Free Online Virus Scan | BitDefender Online Scanner

    Other useful tools for diagnosing computer issues include:
    Process Explorer (Excellent process viewer)
    HijackThis (Submit the log that is created to English-Help for advice on what should and should not be running on your system)
    Malwarebytes (A good program for quickly detecting some types of malicious software installed on your system)
    VirusTotal (Can upload a single file or archive ".rar, .zip, .7z, etc..." that will be scanned by multiple antivirus engines "AVG, ClamAV, Kaspersky, etc...")

    Feel free to list other useful programs for diagnosing infections and cleaning Windows systems.

    The virus was called iFrame injection! So we know it was invented by Apple!
